Two-time Olympic champion Russia in the pole vault Yelena Isinbayeva expressed the hope that Moscow she would still be able to play in the Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro. She wrote about this in his Instagram.

“Tomorrow will be clear, if I have the chance to play in Rio or not. 24 hours hope alive,” — wrote the athlete. She added that she could not hold back tears at a reception at President Vladimir Putin, which was held today, June 27, in the Kremlin “because of resentment”.

“Well, anything that doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. I said, “Elena, you have already won, because our hearts are with you.” Is it really any more victories and medals,” wrote Isinbayeva.

The international Federation of athletics associations (IAAF) was not allowed into the Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro all the Russian athletes, in addition to Daria Kishineu. Isinbayeva challenged this decision with the IAAF in court of arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne, which is slated to announce its decision.

Earlier at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin Isinbayeva wished the Russian athletes committed to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, to act so that “the whole world shook”. She noted that athletes are faced with lawlessness, injustice, arbitrariness of certain people in world sport that can do what I want”. The athlete added that the athletes treated arrogantly and rudely, as many long years preparing for the Olympic games.
