Tatiana Tarasova: “Why on earth should something be canceled? Let athletes and coaches not go to banquets, let them stay in their rooms”
Tatiana Tarasova believes that schedule of competitions shouldn’t be changed because of athletes’ state of health.
Recently it’s been announced that Dmitri Aliev has a positive covid test, Elizaveta Tuktamysheva also skipping the Russian Cup in Moscow, according to some sources also because of the positive test.
Tatiana Tarasova: We should not adjust our schedule of championships and other competitions to the health of athletes. Whatever flu we have, coronavirus or something like that, we have our own schedule, according to which we work. We take care of ourselves in order to protect ourselves to the maximum against illness, but it is unprofessional to adjust competitions to the health state of the athletes.
Why on earth should something be canceled? Let athletes and coaches not go to banquets, let them stay in their rooms or take rest at home, prepare for the next competitions.
