Quote of the IOC President following the release of a FBI report on the case of A. Tokhtakhounov
"The IOC is appalled by the revelations, which came as a total surprise to us. While we knew from previous investigations that the judgement in the pairs figure skating was not correct, we are shocked to learn of the alleged involvement of organised crime. The IOC will want to obtain the full facts and will be liaising with the ISU to progress things as rapidly as possible so that the IOC Executive Board can then examine the case with all the information available."
