"Doesn't listen to experts. Not everything is so unambiguous": Russian Olympic champion called the Canadian figure skater crazy
Two-time Olympic champion Dmitry Vasilyev spoke insultingly of Canadian ex-figure skater Megan Duhamel, who criticized Russians with the words "what's wrong with these people." The former biathlete not only called the North American a sick person, but also issued a whole set of propaganda clichés.
Vasilyev said this in an interview with the R-Sport news agency, commenting on the disqualification of Kamila Valiyeva. The winner of the Sarajevo '84 and Calgary '88 Games accused Duhamel of not considering the opinions of "experts who say that things are not so clear cut."
"There are a lot of crazy people in the West. She belongs to this category. She is prone to very harsh propaganda. They have a one-sided presentation of information, there are no alternative sources to analyze whether it is true or not. It does not even try to translate some other press, experts who say that it is not so clear. It's a sick person to pay attention to her," Vasilyev said.
The day before, the International Skating Union (ISU) deprived the Russian national team of the gold medal at the 2022 Olympics in the team figure skating competition, but left the Russian representatives with the bronze medal. This happened after Valiyeva was disqualified for four years.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, former world heavyweight champion Nikolai Valuev complained that "Russia is being turned into a scarecrow that will soon attack Europe," proving that Kamila Valieva used doping.
