The Russian legendary volleyball player Sergey Tetyukhin has commented on the recent announcements of some media that Russian team might be excluded from the Olympic Games.



The scenario in which the entire Russian team will not be allowed to participate at the Olympic Games in Rio is impossible. The situation must be solved. I understand the political situation in the world and attitude toward Russia. However, sport should be out of politics. I’m sure that the right decision has been taken regarding the Russian team. Nobody has the right to exclude clean athletes from the Olympic Games” says Tetyukhin.

Because as Russians you never do such a thing! ‘Sports should be out of politics’ We’ve all seen Russian teams’ and some of the Russian players behaviors towards Turkish teams although Turks didn’t do anything racist to them and Halkbank welcomed them with presents in Ankara in the match I’ve seen. What I just wrote isn’t about national teams maybe but if you do such a thing then you can’t what you said. So don’t try to seem like you’re all innocent.
