One of the most titled sportsmen in the history of free-style wrestling Arthur Taymazov, who wrestle for the national team of Uzbekistan, commented on the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sports to uphold the verdict of the IOC about depriving him of the gold medal of the 2008 Olympic Games, because in the athlete's doping test, after rechecking, prohibited medicine “turinabol”.
"Of course, I was hoping for a triumph of justice, but this did not happen. My victory was clear, for my fans I will forever be a three-time Olympic champion, no matter what decisions are made regarding me, no matter what they say about me. It's a pity that all this is decided by people who have not done any charging in life, which they cannot even imagine, through which the athlete goes to the top of Olympus. What they do with sports is simply inhumane," TASS agency quotes Taymazov.
In addition to OG-2008, Taymazov won gold at the 2004 and 2012 Olympic Games, as well as silver in Sydney OG-2000.
