I don’t think that FIS Medical Committee with 34 members is the same as FIS Doping Panel. From Kowalczyk verdict we know they were four altogether. They made a fool of themselves in her case and last year when they acquitted Johnsrud Sundby. Maybe they have changed their members now? Or maybe they didn’t want to lose face again. My guess it was the FIS Medical Committee who protested against the Doping Panel when they failed to see any wrong doings in Johnsrud Sundby case. It would be so very interesting to have information of who is seated in the panel now and before.
Andreas Selliaas, a norwegian independent journalist, contacted FIS Communications Manager Jenny Wenneke yesterday(?) asking this exact question. Did not help him much.
Write-up (in norwegian) here: http://www.andreasselliaas.no/2017/03/07/johaug-saken-dreier-seg-kun-om-politikk/
good information, thanx.
if andreas selliaas is an independent journo, i wonder WHY he did not inquire about the names of the secret fis panel DURING the sundby doping trial. the fis doping panel was secret then(when it went the norwegian way) and it is secret now, when it went against the norwegian darling...
i could be wrong, but discgear will correct me, the question of who sat on the fis sundby panel that acquitted him was first raised by me in this thread. not that i am seeking some fame or something, but to me it was a natural, logical question to ask. needless to mention i read the major norwegian media daily. i searched and searched and not once had i seen the natural question raised by ANY norwegian journo. discgear came to the same conclusion too. independently. i can assure everyone we do not pm or email each other.
suddenly, we have some 'independent' norwegian concerned with the fis secrecy as if it was just instituted to screw up lil therese.
moreover, that piece by andreas is remarkable in another way. besides alluding to the idiotic gender theory that it could have been the 17 old white men (of the total 19 fis council members) that colluded...it also builds a possible conspiracy by the fis swedish, finnish and russian members.
independent my **** that journo is
