“This division between “worthy” (get status + top 3) and “unworthy” (denial of status, or past the top 3) athletes is discrimination, incitement to hostility between the Federation athletes. If wfla is unable to pay all applications, it is necessary to stop the selection “selected”. Once again I remind you that the current problem with neutral status and a debt of $5 million was “due to” Federation”, — wrote in his Instagram Laecken.

Earlier it was reported that wfla compensates for the winners of the biggest competitions of the cost of premium for the receive neutral status.
