SOCHI, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Ski Race Federation intends to have consultations with lawyers as regards a possible appeal Russia might file against a resolution by the International Ski Federation on Russian skier Maxim Vylegzhanin who was placed fourth in the Olympic skiathlon race, President of the Russian Federation Yelena Vyalbe told Itar-Tass.
Earlier, the President of the Russian Ski Race Federation told Itar-Tass that the Federation intends to fight to the end and would press ahead with its demand to have the bronze medal awarded to the Russian skier.
On Tuesday, the International Ski Federation turned down Russia's appeal and left the results of the skiathlon race unchanged and confirmed the Norwegian skier, Martin Sundby, as the acknowledged winner of the bronze medal.
