MOSCOW, June 17. /TASS/. Two-time Olympic pole vault champion Yelena Isinbayeva told TASS on Friday she intended to prove in a court of law that the decision by the Council of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) to keep in force Russian membership’s suspension violated human rights.
Russian athletes won’t be able to take part in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro unless the International Association of Athletics Federations restores Russia’s membership. However, the International Olympic Committee may decide at its June 21 session to admit Russian athletes to the Rio Olympics.
‘This is a violation of human rights. I won’t keep silent. I’ll turn to a human rights court. I’ll prove to the IAAF and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) that they have made a wrong decision. I’ll do this demonstratively so that it is understood that Russia won’t stay silent," she said.
Russia’s national track and field athletics championships due in Cheboksary on June 20-23 may prove the last for renowned woman pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva.
"I will certainly go to the Russian championships in Cheboksary," said 34-year-old Isinbayeva, who still has the hope for competing at the 2016 Olympics. "In all likelihood Cheboksary will be the last big event in my career."
Isinbayeva was born in Volgograd. In 2004 and 2008 she won the Olympic golds and in 2012, the bronze. She has 28 world records to her credit. On February 12, 2015 she said she was resuming her career after a pause to declare that participation in the Rio Olympics was her goal, adding she would quit sports afterwards.
