MOSCOW, August 8. /TASS/. Filing an appeal at the federal court in Lausanne was just the first step in what is going to prove long struggle against discrimination, the 2015 world champion in men’s 110 m hurdles, Sergey Shubenkov, has told TASS.
Spokesman for the Swiss Federal Court in Lausanne Peter Josi earlier informed TASS that Isinbayeva and Russian track and field athlete Sergey Shubenkov had appealed the ban verdict of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) disqualifying them from competing in the Rio Olympics.
"Of course, there is no hope for participating in the Olympics any more. It’s rather a quest for justice," he said. "It is very wrong an athlete like me, who has never violated anything, is not taking part in the Olympics Games. This is not the way it should be. Filing a protest was just the first step in what may prove a long quest for justice and struggle against discrimination, in which I will seek moral compensation. I have a degree in law and I am aware of some legal nuances," he added.
"We decided to spare time, not to wait for the end of the Games and act now - this a logical step to appeal the CAS verdict from July 21. We cannot agree with the (CAS) verdict. What do you think of this: the court returns the verdict (not in favor of the plaintiff), then the secretary general comes out with a press release and says that the plaintiff’s arguments were in fact fair. What can we do after this if not to appeal this decision?" Shubenkov noted.
