He did not qualify for the London Olympics without qualifying for the Russian Championship.
“After that year, I didn’t take anything because I realized that this was not the sport I would like. My motivation in sports was the desire to become stronger and develop in a very difficult technical discipline. I was interested in training methods, improving results, techniques and psychology for these Sport without those three things, but with doping, it didn’t give me pleasure and it didn’t make sense to me.”
