Figure Skating Federation of Russia is committed to protect the honor of an athlete

I found that many people are interested in this article, so here’s my translation.

Information about figure skater Ksenia Stolbovoy, spreaded in Russian media, was an incorrect translation of the chapter from Richard McLaren’s (head of WADA commision on doping in Russian sport) report.

Some Russian media hastened to write that the report refers to athlete – winner and Olympic silver medalist, whose doping samples were tampered due to DNA mismatch. Based on the above, it was concluded that, only one Russian athlete fits to this category – Ksenia Stolbova.

However, after a careful reading of the text of the report, turned out that there is no direct evidence in this section that this is about Olympic Games, held in Sochi in 2014. Moreover, in different places of the report used the pronouns “he” and “she”.

According to the doctors of the Russian national figure skating team, athlete Ksenia Stolbova since childhood has been proned to all sorts of allergic reactions to medications, so she always treated taking medications very seriously and carefully. Many people know that for a long time Stolbova has been refusing to take any medication, as this may cause an allergic shock, posing a real threat to her life.

Figure Skating Federation of Russia (FFKKR) is committed to protect the honor and dignity of a member of the Russian national team, Olympic champion and silver medalist of the Olympic Games 2014 Ksenia Stolbova from all sorts of speculation and innuendo. In addition, we consider it necessary to remind the media of the existing law on the media, which contains clauses about spread of unverified and false information.

    Thank god. I would feel awful if they were doping because they’re such a wonderful pair. You don’t get one like that every year.
    I really doubt that she’d have time to dope with all her photo shoots and all. If anything, she’s on a steroid for hotness factor.

  2. Stolbova Obsessed says:

    I really hope it’s not doping. She is my queen and I would hate to find out that the awesome performance in Sochi was drug related.
    I don’t think it was bc she skated well for at least half a season after. Four competitions after Sochi she was still doing pretty good.

      After Olympics Stolbova/Klimov competed at World Championships in Japan, and won a medal, so they 100% had to pass the dopping test and it was clean. So, I doubt they used something before.
