Russian biathlete president in bad weather: – He has to go

Russian biathlete president Viktor Majgurov, 54, is in trouble after his second university diploma was found to be invalid.

Viktor Majgurov holds up Russian-made skis during a press conference in January 2023.

  • In 2001, Majgurov earned a bachelor’s degree in jurisprudence at a faculty in Yekaterinburg.
  • On May 18, 2023, a court in Yekaterinburg ruled that the diploma was invalid.
  • Also in 2011, Majgurov received a university education that was found to be invalid – at that time in sports.
  • In the summer of 2020, he was unanimously elected president of the biathlon association – a very attractive position in Russia.

Now many believe – or suggest – that Majgurov should go to the penalty shootout which ends with him having to leave as biathlon president.

– Majgurov must resign. Now that the most senior members of the association are being punished for fake certificates, this is a serious problem, Dmitrij Vasiliev, former Olympic champion in biathlon, told R-sports.

– Should Majgurov go? Yes I think so. He knows that himself. Whether she stays in office is up to her own conscience, Anfisa Reztsova, former biathlete and cross-country runner, now a politician, told Express Sports.

– The longer Majgurov and the press service at the Biathlon Union were silent, the worse it became. Much worse, says the famous TV commentator Dmitry Guberniyev Telegram.

Perhaps Russia’s most famous newspaper commentator – and former fall Olympic hero – Jelena Vajtsekhovskaja, believes that the sport of biathlon will pay off handsomely if Majgurov sticks around:

– If the goal is to sit in the president’s chair for every prize, the sport is not only doomed, but also set back years, he wrote in Telegram.
