OMG - Irina Deriugina SUSPENDED UNTIL 2016

7:49 PM

Like OMG what of earth has been happening? No explanations as yet but hopefully someone somewhere gets to the bottom of this! Some people are even suggesting that no Irina means a lesser standard from Miss Bessonova and a medal that she seriously in my opinion deserves but may go begging =( very sadness.

Now to see what IG says, oh and:

4) Damages the image of gymnastics, the FIG, or its members through his behaviour, his words, or his deeds;
5) Adopts an unsportsmanlike behaviour,
7) Acts in such a way so as to influence the course or the result of the competitions in an improper way;
9) Behaves in an offensive way towards the FIG members, gymnasts, or FIG officials.
10) Seriously damages the dignity of a person or a group of persons, in any way whatsoever, in particular due to his colour, his race, a handicap, his sex, his religion or his ethnic origin
