MOSCOW, December 17. /TASS/. Double Olympic biathlon champion Martin Fourcade of France said Friday that journalists misinterpreted his statement about the doping scandal in Russia.
The International Biathlon Union said Thursday 31 Russian athletes had been mentioned in the latest report by Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren for the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Later, Norway’s NRK channel published an interview with Fourcade, in which he calls on athletes to boycott World Cup events if the IBU fails to take tough action against those mentioned in the report.
"My statement is that before any reaction, insinuations or loose talk we have to wait for proof," Fourcade wrote in a statement in English and Russian, which was posted on his official page in Russia’s VK social networking site.
"I will always fight for a clean sport and will never accept to compete with athletes who break the rules," he went on. "Thanks for your love, your support, your trust and to judge me for who I am, for what I do, and not for bad translations of words and sentences I never said."
IBU president Anders Besseberg said the organization will decide on its further action after a working group prepares its recommendations by December 22.
