Well, she has been exonerated by the International Sport Tribune (CAS). So that is it and she was not to blame under the weak rules of FIS, and her personal involvement in fraud was not proven.TonyGH05VM wrote: ↑Sat Sep 04, 2021 10:06 pmOkay, the truth is that I have not delved much into that subject, but following what you tell me well, at first I think that all countries can become corrupt in some way or another, at second Vanessa-Mae knows that she is a public figure so I don't think that she knowing this, and that there are rules to enter a competition, she will use her fame to enter the competition, or from a test with a false result from her tournament organization, and if so, I believe that She would think twice, knowing that she can be discovered and her image could be affected, Vanessa has been practicing that sport for a long time according to what I know, and we could also take into account that several factors could make her test to enter not coincided with her performance during the real test, sometimes not everything turns out the same and this may be due to nerves or I do not know ... Thirdly, I think that Vanessa already paid the consequence (if she was guilty ...), this was the exposure and "public humiliation" that she passed when released this news, whether or not it was true ... I think that was the FIS 'mistake: claiming that it was cheating when they did not have enough evidence, and then reversing the decision. I do not know if my arguments are understood, I do not know much about the subject ... In my opinion it is something that has already happened and it is better to remember the good things she has done ...
However, Vanessa-Mae was not able to qualify during normal FIS tournaments, and she decided to buy herself a tournament in Slovenia. Now, every person with average intelligence can understand that such is not the intention of a sports organization, though such was not explicitly forbidden under the rules of FIS. She acted as a spoiled rich girl and bought what she wanted to have but could not get on her own merits.
This changed the way I look at her. But officially, legally, she was not to blame. I blame her morally, she violated the integrity of the sport; that is how I see it! It says something about her character.
But she remains a beautiful woman, and her music is fabulous, but I simply don't like her anymore as a person.
