The first Russian ski team was deprived of the bronze medals won by athletes in the relay at the World Cup in Lahti (Finland). On Sunday, January 24, RIA Novosti reports.
Domestic skiers showed the third result in the competition. The team held a race with the following composition: Alexander Bolshunov, Evgeny Belov, Denis Spetsov and Alexey Chervotkin. However, due to the unsportsmanlike behavior of Bolshunov, they were deprived of the award. After the finish, the Russian knocked down one of the rivals. The second Russian team, finishing fourth, thus moved up to third place.
