BUENOS AIRES, September 5 (Itar-Tass) - International Olympic Committee will consider sanctions against the Russian track-and-field star, Yelena Isinbayeva, who publicly defended Russia’s law that bans the propaganda of homosexual practices among children, IOC outgoing President Jacques Rogge said here Wednesday.
In part, Isinbayeva might lose a title of ambassador for the Youth Olympics.
“This is something we will consider in due time,” Rogge said.
Isinbayeva spoke in defense of the law restricting gay propaganda after she had won the pole vault at the world track-and-field championships in Moscow in August. She condemned homosexuality and criticized two Swedish athletes who painted their fingernails in rainbow colors “in support of gay rights.”
