ROC President Pozdnyakov’s press conference canceled three hours before it starts

The leadership of the Russian Olympic Committee switched to a remote mode of operation

There are 16 days left before the start of the Winter Olympic Games. On January 20, a meeting of the ROC Executive Committee was held in Moscow, at which the composition of the ROC Team for participation in the XXIV Olympic Winter Games 2022 in Beijing (PRC) was approved. After the meeting, a press conference was scheduled for ROC President Stanislav Pozdnyakov, at which he wanted to share with journalists relevant information about the final stage of the ROC Team preparation, as well as, among other things, about the peculiarities of logistics and the stay of athletes and members of our delegation at the Games in China.

The possibility of a face-to-face meeting with the head of the ROC caused great excitement among domestic and foreign media. As MK managed to find out, the number of applications exceeded the number of seats in the press center, taking into account the need to comply with all precautionary measures. At the same time, on January 18, it was reported that Russian athletes who will take part in the Winter Olympics in Beijing will not be able to leave the location of the bases before leaving for the competition due to the tightening of measures to combat coronavirus infection.

And three hours before the start of the press conference, a message appeared on the site about its cancellation.

“Due to the current epidemiological situation and the imminent departure to the Olympic Games in Beijing, it was decided to transfer the representatives of the leadership of the Russian delegation, including ROC President Stanislav Pozdnyakov, to remote work for the days remaining before departure to minimize risks. In this regard, we ask you to treat the cancellation of the press conference with understanding,” the message said.

As MK found out, Pozdnyakov did not come to the meeting of the ROC executive committee, but takes part in its work online. At the same time, everything is in order with his health. His communication with the media may take place later.
