It finally goes on!
The last 4 weeks I was stuck in southern Turkey, I used for small training sessions in the area and at the same time looking for possibilities how it could go on for me.
Now a door has finally opened. The German Triathlon Union DTU, the German-Russian Forum and the Russian Olympic Committee have used their network to make an entry to Russia possible after all. As it looks, a visa will be ready for me next Friday at the Russian Consulate in Istanbul.
I will be on my way to Istanbul tomorrow.
