Russian commentator Dmitry Guberniev proposed to punish athletes who refuse to communicate with journalists, reports Gazeta.ru with reference to the Kalashnikov Media.
The commenter believes that such behavior of the athletes is a sign of disrespect to the audience.
“Who does not communicate with the media — fine. I don’t need athletes to communicate with me. It’s what people”, — said province.
Prior to this, the commentator criticized the three-time European champion Alexander Loginov for the fact that he ignored a meeting with representatives of the media.
P. S. We are in the Yacht Russia fully support the initiative to Chelsea. Hopefully, the famous commentator will listen as the Ministry of sports and Olympic Committee and sports federations.
If the Chelsea offer is accepted, then, in our opinion, it certainly should be extended to sailing. More recently, among the sailors and their coaches, alas, it has become fashionable to play with reporters in silence. And that is unacceptable.
