MOSCOW, November 16 /TASS/. Two-time pole vault Olympic champion Yelena Isinbayeva is ready to defend her sport honesty in court if anybody accuses her of doping use.
"If anybody accuses me, I will litigate them in court. I will undergo all the tests and make all the lawyers work for me," Isinbayeva told a news conference at TASS.
Isinbayeva has said she is not sure that she will be able to compete at the Olympic Games under the flag of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
"I am not sure that competing under the Olympic flag is possible. The issue is now discussed in the sports circles, but nobody knows anything specific," she said.
The Council of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) during its meeting on Friday found the report of the All-Russian Athletics Federation (ARAF) on fighting against doping unconvincing and overwhelmingly voted to temporarily suspend the Russian national federation’s membership in this international organization. According to many experts, there is a strong possibility that Russia’s track-and-field team will not be able to take part in the World Indoor Championships to be held from March 17 to March 20, 2016, in the United States and in the Olympic Games in Brazil in August.
Isinbayeva is a two-time Olympic champion (Athens-2004, Beijing-2008), a silver medalist of the London 2012 Olympics and a three-time world champion. She set 28 world records during her career.
