(ANSA) – BEIJING, FEBRUARY 14 – The IOC announced that it had ‘warned’ with a warning the Ukrainian skeleton athlete Vladyslav Heraskevych who, at the end of one of his tests, had shown the cameras a sign with the words “No War In Ukraine”. The spokesman for the Olympic committee Mark Adams made it known during the press briefing.

Adams specified that the Ukrainian committee was made aware of the fact, and revealed that “when the fact happened, we immediately conversed with the team of the athlete, to whom we explained the matter. He understood, and in fact in his last descent he did not repeat the gesture. We all want peace, but the athletes themselves, at the time, agreed on the fact that the podium and the moments of the race are not the place to send certain messages, because we need remain politically neutral. So the fact of Heraskevych did not repeat itself, and now let’s move on. “

Heraskevych, for his part, limited himself to a brief comment: “I want peace, in my country and in the world. This is my position, and I will fight for this, and therefore for peace”.
