I understand that the substance is permissible but when it is many times higher than the limit it is no longer to follow the rules. I demanded of the Vidar to ensure that it would never happen again, " says 40-year-old to the Finnish newspaper.
Vidar Löfshus says nothing about him leaving his post because of the criticism, but Saarinen is not the only one who after dopningsfallen and regarding Norwegian skier's use of asthma drugs even to healthy skaters, have been critical towards the Norwegian landslagschefen.
