The Czech national biathlon team will wear headbands in the colors of the Ukrainian flag at the upcoming stages of the World Cup. Jiri Gamza, president of the Czech Biathlon Union, said:
“I think Russia has no place on the sports map at the moment, in all sports. Well, there is no room for compromise. For dictatorial regimes such as Russia, sport is an important element of propaganda. So why should we, athletes, feed this propaganda?”
“Ukrainian biathletes will have the opportunity to train for free at Czech bases as soon as it becomes possible,” – Gamza also said.
