The current president of the Russian Biathlon Union (RBU), Viktor Maigurov, said that he calmly reacted to the procedure for electing the head of the organization, but was offended that not everyone who promised to do so voted for him.

“There was a constructive dialogue, the conference was productive. It’s great that there was an open vote, we must openly look into each other’s eyes. We are not focused on personal ambitions, but on the overall development of biathlon, ”Maygurova quotes “RIA News”.

According to him, the participants in the elections wanted everything to be decided in the first round. “We have certain agreements with Nuzhdov. We will just work for the next two months until the next round of elections,” he added.

Elections of the President of the Russian Biathlon Union postponed to the end of August

Maygurov noted that Nuzhdov is not the kind of person who refuses to fight. “I didn’t think about whether it’s a shame or not not to win because of one vote. But the way some people voted was insulting,” the president said.

The election of the President of the RBU was held in Moscow on June 23. None of the candidates received two-thirds of the votes. Maigurov was supported by 35 delegates, Vice-President of the RBU Alexei Nuzhdov – 18. Maigurov lacked one vote to win. In this regard, it was decided that the re-election of the President of the RBU will be held at an extraordinary conference, presumably at the end of August. A simple majority will be needed to win the re-election.
