The Italian runner supported the Russians after the race around Mont Blanc


KAZAN, August 28, Vadim Kuznetsov. Italian runner Federico Barucco supported Russian athletes at the finish of the ultra-marathon Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc, which took place from 26 to 28 August. Barukko finished in a uniform in the colors of the Russian flag and held a banner with the inscription “Sport without borders.” “I wanted to appeal to everyone who participated in competitions, and these are athletes from 120 countries. Sport should unite people, and any suspension is discrimination. I want to support Russian athletes – both leading and only beginners – who should not pay with their dreams and years of suffering, “said Barukko .In February, the International Olympic Committee (IOC), against the backdrop of events in Ukraine, recommended that international federations not allow Russian and Belarusian athletes to compete. A number of international federations accepted this recommendation and excluded Russians and Belarusians from competitions under their auspices.
