Auston Matthews on William Nylander: “I hope everything works out. I’m sure it will. He’s obviously his own man, and he’ll make his own decisions, and I hope he’s a Maple Leaf for a really long time as well.”

Doping scandals in Russia aren’t necessarily a new story. Still, we’re talking about a country that was suspended from the Olympics for four years (later reduced to two) by the World Anti-Doping Agency in 2019 due to a system within the country to dope athletes.
But today, a new story linked to illegal products in Russia has surfaced, and we’re still talking about a fairly major case: seven players from Tolpar Ufa, a junior team in Russia, have accused their fitness trainer, Igor Zagretdinov, of forcing them to dop themselves with products they didn’t know about.
The 7 Tolpar players who were caught doping have accused their PT coach saying he gave them injections with unknown drugs under threats. 😬

Again according to the players, the team’s management knew what was going on, but decided to ignore the problem since they trusted their fitness trainer. The players were therefore injected with products they didn’t know about under threat.
This is Salafat Yulaev’s club-school, by the way.
And if the allegations prove to be true, I really hope that Zagretdinov will be severely punished. Because in reality, he may have ruined the careers of these youngsters, and possibly those of many others who didn’t testify.
