And about. President of ARAF, Olympic champion Irina Privalova commented on her appointment as head of the organization. Privalov will be replaced by Petr Ivanov, who left his post until December 2022 in connection with the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
“I understood that, most likely, it will be so. I am ready to take the post, I will continue the chosen course, cooperate with the working group, I hope that we will succeed. I think that the state of ARAF is better than it was three or four months or a year ago. There have been positive steps, it seems to me that there is light at the end of the tunnel, of course, there is hope for recovery.
I have contacts with both the [World Athletics] working group and the experts. The contact is good. I hope that it will continue and that the work will be fruitful.
OI tasks? We will solve the problems in stages. Now it is difficult to predict anything for the Olympic Games, which, it is not clear, will take place. We will do everything to the last so that we perform at the upcoming European Championship,”TASS quotes Privalova.
