Norway could be kicked out of world sport for doping. Finished the game?

Alexander GovorovReporter SportAll materialsOne of the world's major sports powers in winter sports is in danger of being kicked to the sidelines due to possible non-compliance with anti-doping rules. The matter may reach the complete isolation of Norway. How did it happen? Huge risks for the countrySensational news came from Norway's largest sports publication NRK. They found that problems with anti-doping legislation could lead to the fact that the country will soon be denied permission to host international competitions from 2023. Another possible sanction is the exclusion of Norway from participation in the Olympic and Paralympic Games, as well as the World and European Championships. Have the Norwegians finished the game? This is a real risk if the Norwegian sports authorities and the country's anti-doping service do not find a quick solution. The president of the Norwegian Handball Federation Kare Geir Lyo is already sounding the alarm, because his country should host two world championships – in 2023 and 2025. At the same time, he noted in an interview with NRK Sport that he was not aware of what was happening, and this information came as a shock to him. The same was said by the head of Norwegian football, Lisa Claveness. She is sure that possible sanctions will be a tragedy for Norwegian football in particular and the whole sport in general. So what are the complaints against the Norwegians? The crux of the matter lies in the interpretation of the law, which states that athletes between the ages of 15 and 18 cannot be tested for doping without the consent of their parents. It turned out that over the past two years, not a single minor has been tested without warning, which is contrary to the international anti-doping code. President of the Norwegian Olympic Committee (NIF) Berit Kjell and chairman of the board of the country's Anti-Doping Agency Thorhild Widvi are trying to find a way out of the situation. To do this, they sent a letter to the Minister for Children and Families, Hjersey Toppe, and the Minister for Culture and Gender Equality, Anette Trettebergstuen, demanding that the law be changed, which could lead to the complete isolation of Norwegian sports in the near future.
