“I watched videos of the episode a few times. It can be seen that Julia was trying to overtake Frida, but she closed her trajectory and twice poked a stick in the face of Julia”, — quotes the coach of Expressen.

According to him, it does not justify the reaction of the Russian athletes and believes that it is wrong, but understands the reaction of Belorukova.

“What did Frida was wrong. I talked to the jury about it,” said Kramer.

Earlier it was reported that the skier Belorukova disqualified for blow of the rival by a stick.
