Head coach of the Russian female national team on handball Evgenie Trefilov has refused to participate in the Olympics under a neutral flag. About it reports TASS.
Earlier it became known that the international Olympic Committee has suspended the national team of Russia from participation in the Olympic winter games 2018 in Pyeongchang. Russian athletes will perform in competition under a neutral flag. Trefilov did not intend to agree to such conditions, as he considers that Russia has its own flag and under the other it should not appear. He is sure that this is the case when we have to be nationalism and respect for his country.
IReactor previously reported that the VGTRK refused to broadcast Olympic games in 2018 without the participation of the Russian team.
