Borodavko on returning to international competitions: “I don’t have any special illusions”



Yury Borodavko, head coach of the Russian cross-country skiing team, does not believe that the national team will return to international competitions in the near future.

On Thursday, VG published a statement by FIS Secretary General Michel Vion that the return of Russian and Belarusian skiers to the World Cup could happen in December. This decision can be made after the appropriate recommendation of the IOC. Vion also noted that if allowed, Russian and Belarusian athletes would probably go to the start in a neutral status.

– The fact that they are discussing this issue is already good. I cannot say that our chances of this discussion are sharply increasing; there is no positive mood after this. After all, FIS is a public organization, and all issues are decided by voting. Knowing the political situation in the world, the attitude of various federations towards our country and athletes, I have no particular illusions. If a positive decision is made, I will be glad. I have a principle – it’s better to be surprised than disappointed, – Borodavko told the “Championship”.

At the end of February, the IOC executive committee recommended that the federations ban Russian and Belarusian athletes from participating in competitions due to the situation in Ukraine. Many federations followed these recommendations.

    NFL Power Rankings: Eagles storm No. 1 as Cowboys grow




    (SN illustration)

    Only one undefeated team remains in the NFL after the first month of the 222nd season. Congratulations to eagles because he went 4-0 through almost a quarter of the calendar. Your reward is to climb to the top of the latter NFL Power Rankings.

    Philadelphia has emerged as one of the winning teams in the NFC en route to Super Bowl 57. The Eagles, who made the playoffs last year, join the Packers, Buccaneers, Rams and 49ers on the list of conference title contenders. But the Eagles still hold just one lead in the East over the defending division champion Cowboys.

    Below, we take a look at the team’s rise to the top and how all the teams from No. 2 through 32 are following it for Week 5.

    NFL Power Rankings Week 5

    1. Philadelphia Eagles 4-0 (previous rank: 3)

    The Eagles fell into an 0-14 hole against the Jaguars at home, but erased it with several runs on a day of inclement weather and Jalen Hurts leading their offense. The defense was also up to the task of cooling a hot young QB.

    2. Buffalo Bills 3-1 (2)

    The Bills were slow to get going in rainy Baltimore before Josh Allen decided to take control with his hands and feet, pushing himself back into the MVP lead. Poor pass defense also got the better of him again.

    3. Kansas City Chiefs 3-1 (6)

    The Chiefs offense refocused as the Colts stumbled to dismantle a stout Buccaneers defense with their very diverse playbook of pass and run. Patrick Mahomes continues to improve with his remixed weapons and Andy Reid’s updated, more balanced philosophy.

    4. Green Bay Packers 3-1 (4)

    The Packers have already found the right combination of receivers to feed Aaron Rodgers and the running game is always reliable. The defense still proved vulnerable against the Patriots, but they’re a definite contender again.

    5. Miami Dolphins 3-1 (1)

    The Dolphins defense couldn’t handle the Bengals pass rush and their offense took a big hit as Tua Tagovailoa went down. They should bounce back quickly against the upstart Jets.

    6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2-2 (5)

    The Buccaneers have had a brutal opening schedule as they iron out offensive and defensive issues as Tom Brady watched Rodgers and Mahomes enjoy the team’s victories. His schedule will once again open up for the weak NFC South.

    7. San Francisco 49ers 2-2 (12)

    The 49ers are getting more or less what was expected from their stout overall defense and they have their traditional running game and Jimmy Garoppolo got more of his receivers than he needed vs. the rams.

    8. Minnesota Vikings 3-1 (10)

    The Vikings figured out how to make Justin Jefferson work like he exploded in Week 1, and their defense took advantage of a thin Saints offense. It’s still a work in progress, so they should be excited about the original record.

    9. Dallas Cowboys 3-1 (11)

    Cooper Rush continues to play well with all of his weapons in a great passing scheme and his defense continues to contribute in pass and coverage. They were built better than expected to thrive without Dak Prescott.

    10.Baltimore Ravens 2-2 (8)

    The Ravens defense rose to the occasion as much as possible against Josh Allen, but they again made some small mistakes to take the lead against the Bills, just like Week 2 against the Dolphins. Lamar Jackson still carries much of the team, but it was nice to see more of a healthy JK Dobbins.

    11. Cincinnati Bengals 2-2 (13)

    12. Los Angeles Rams 2-2 (7)

    13. New York Giants 3-1 (16)

    14. Denver Broncos 2-2 (9)

    15. Jacksonville Jaguars 2-2 (14)

    16. Los Angeles Chargers 2-2 (17)

    17. Cleveland Browns 2-2 (15)

    18. Tennessee Titans 2-2 (20)

    19. Arizona Cardinals 2-2 (22)

    20. Las Vegas Raiders 1-3 (27)

    21. New England Patriots 1-3 (23)

    22. New York Jets 2-2 (28)

    23. Atlanta Falcons 2-2 (29)

    24 Seattle Seahawks 2-2 (31)

    25. Chicago Bears 2-2 (19)

    26. Indianapolis Colts 1-2-1 (18)

    27. Pittsburgh Steelers 1-3 (21)

    28. New Orleans Saints 1-3 (24)

    29. Detroit Lions 1-3 (25)

    30. Washington Commanders 1-3 (26)

    31. Carolina Panthers 1-3 (30)

    32. Houston Texans 0-3-1 (32)
