今年的波士頓馬拉松賽拒絕俄國及白俄羅斯選手

              (Boston Orange) 波士頓體育會今 (6)日宣佈,在公開報名過程中,已報名並獲准參加2022波士頓馬拉松賽公開賽,或者5K賽,但目前仍居住在俄國及白俄羅斯的體育選手,將不再獲准參加這一比賽。

             不是這2國居民,但是俄國及白俄羅斯公民,已在公開報名過程中獲准參賽者,將仍可參賽,但這些選手將不准在2國的旗幟下跑步上路。

             波士頓體育會會長及執行長 Tom Grilk表示,就像世界各地的許多人一樣,我們為我們所看到的和知道的關於烏克蘭的報導,感到可怕、憤怒。我們相信跑步是一種全球運動,因此我們必須盡可能展示我們對烏克蘭人民的支持

             波士頓體育會,其所辦理比賽及活動將不承認俄國及白俄羅斯這2個國家,以及其旗幟。

             波士頓體育會將在聯邦政府及國際制裁限制下,合理的試圖退款給來自俄國及白俄羅斯,不能參賽的選手。 

               波士頓體育會將為已報名參加第126屆波士頓馬拉松賽或5k賽,但不能參賽的烏克蘭人,提供退款,或是延期到以後參賽的選擇。波士頓體育會將在今春稍後直接和這些選手聯繫。

 B.A.A. Policy on Russian and Belarusian Athletes

 

BOSTON — The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) announced today that Russians and Belarusians, who were accepted into the 2022 Boston Marathon or 2022 B.A.A. 5K as part of the open registration process and are currently residing in either country, will no longer be allowed to compete in either event.

 

Russian and Belarusian citizens, who were accepted into the 2022 Boston Marathon or 2022 B.A.A. 5K as part of the open registration process but are not residents of either country, will be able to compete. These athletes, however, will not be able to run under the flag of either country.

 

“Like so many around the world, we are horrified and outraged by what we have seen and learned from the reporting in Ukraine,” said President & CEO of the B.A.A. Tom Grilk. “We believe that running is a global sport, and as such, we must do what we can to show our support to the people of Ukraine.”

 

The B.A.A., its races, and events will not recognize the country affiliation or flag of Russia or Belarus until further notice. The 2022 Boston Marathon, B.A.A. 5K, and B.A.A. Invitational Mile do not include any professional or invited athletes from Russia or Belarus.

 

The B.A.A. will make reasonable attempts to refund the athletes from Russia or Belarus who will no longer be able to participate, within the constraints as imposed by federal and international sanctions.

 

The B.A.A. will provide all Ukrainians who are registered in the 126th Boston Marathon or the 2022 B.A.A. 5K and are unable to compete with a refund or option to defer to a future year. The B.A.A. will reach out to these athletes directly later this spring.
