BISHKEK, February 13. /ITAR-TASS/. The only Kyrgyz athlete who gained the right to compete in Alpine skiing at the Winter Olympics in the southern Russian city of Sochi, will not perform in Olympic competition over an injury he had got at a training session and will be substituted, the Kyrgyz state agency of physical culture and sports told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“Alpine skier Dmitry Trelevsky, who was expected to compete at the Olympics for our country, has got an injury during training in Sochi and had to drop from the competition,” the republican state committee said. Trelevsky was to compete right in three Alpine skiing disciplines - slalom, super slalom and giant slalom.
However, Kyrgyzstan will be represented at the Winter Olympics after all. “We had successful talks with the leadership of the International Olympic Committee and the International Alpine Skiing Federation and they permitted us to substitute Trelevsky,” the country’s committee said. Alpine skier Yevgeny Timofeyev will play in the Olympic competition instead of Trelevsky injured before their start. However, he will perform only in two disciplines - slalom and giant slalom. He is expected to arrive in Sochi from Bishkek on Friday afternoon.
