The All-Russian Federation of Athletics (ARAF) announced the departure of Svetlana Abramova from the post of sports director of the organization.
According to Abramova, who transmits press service ARAF, she decided to leave the post because of the need to combine it with the work of a national team coach.
“At that moment the federation needed help and I could not refuse the request to lend my shoulder. But over time, I clearly felt that for the sake of the result, one had to sacrifice others. I clearly understood that for the sake of the student, Angelica Sidorova, with whom we have been walking hand in hand for 19 years already, for the sake of our joint work and on the eve of the approaching Olympics, I need to stop and make an informed choice, ”Abramova said.
She stressed that despite leaving the post of sports director, she remains a member of the Presidium and the head coach of the national team and, due to her opportunities, intends to continue the work begun on the development and popularization of athletics in general, and in particular, to implement plans for the development of pole vaulting.
Earlier, the head of the ARAF, Peter Ivanov, said that he had a full understanding of how to bring Russian athletics out of the crisis.
