MOSCOW, 28 Sep – The Norwegian Ski Federation refused to participate in the meetings of the committees of the International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS) due to the fact that Russian representatives were invited there.
The annual meetings of the FIS committees will be held in Zurich (Switzerland) from September 28 to 30, for the first time in two years these meetings are held in person. Just under 30 delegates from Norway were to go to Switzerland.
“The current FIS policy regarding Russia and Belarus applies only to athletes, not to officials. Therefore, all members of the FIS committees have the right to participate in meetings,” the FIS press service comments.
FIS at the end of February suspended Russian and Belarusian athletes from international competitions due to events in Ukraine. The decision was open-ended as long as it remains in effect and is due to be reviewed by the FIS Council on 22 October.
