Report: Russian Tennis Player Circumvents Wimbledon Ban By Becoming Georgian

Says ban on Russian sportsmen and women “is super unfair because none of them have done anything.”

In a move that highlights the stupidity of Wimbledon’s ban on Russian and Belarusian tennis players, one competitor has changed her nationality from Russian to Georgian and is now being allowed to compete again.

The Times of London reports that Natela Dzalamidze, a 29-year-old doubles player ranked No 44 in the world, managed to switch her nationality to Georgian before the deadline for registering to compete at the grand slam tournament in London.

The report further notes that the All England Club, the venue for Wimbledon, “insisted today that it had no involvement in Dzalamidze’s change of nationality,” and is powerless to stop her from competing.

The repot adds that “The verification process is conducted through the WTA and the ITFTennis.”

The report further notes that Dzalamidze was born in Moscow on February 27, 1993, and it isn’t clear what connection she has to Georgia.

Dzalamidze has said that she had already decided to change her nationality before Wimbledon announced the ban in April.

“I am definitely against the situation which is going on in Ukraine,” Dzalamidze told The Times, adding “I am for peace all around the world and I believe that in the 21st century people are able to find a diplomatic way to solve the problems.”

She added “I feel so disappointed for all other Russian sportspeople who are not competing, adding “Other than tennis and chess, most sports have banned Russians, which I think is super unfair because none of them have done anything.”

“This is not the mistake of professional athletes. As a sportsperson I have always had a close relationship with Ukrainians. People want to hear something from us but we do not have an influence on this situation,” the athlete continued.

As we previously highlighted, former world number one tennis player Daniil Medvedev will not be able to compete at Wimbledon. Medvedev was first threatened with exclusion by the British government from the tournament unless he denounced Vladimir Putin, despite already having said he is against the war.

Ukrainian tennis star Elina Svitolina also demanded that Russian and Belarusian players be subjected to ideological purity tests before they are allowed to compete in international tournaments.

The issue became a moot one as far as Wimbledon goes when the All England Club decided to impose a blanket ban on Russians and Belarusians.

The decision supersedes an earlier directive by tennis authorities the ITF, WTA and ATP which said that Russian and Belarusian players could continue to appear at tour events, but only as neutrals and without displaying national colors.

Fellow Russian top 30 men’s players Andrey Rublev, Karen Khachanov and Aslan Karatsev will also miss out, as will former women’s world number one Victoria Azarenka and current number four Aryna Sabalenka.

Elite players including Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, who has faced his own cancelation problems, have branded the decision as “unfair” and “crazy”.

Medvedev himself warned that Wimbledon’s decision to ban all Russian and Belarusian players from this year’s tournament sets the precedent that sporting authorities can eliminate competitors for their political views.

    London Police Recruiting Illiterate Officers Who Can Barely Write English to Meet Diversity Quotas

    They may also have criminal records.

    The Metropolitan Police in London is recruiting officers who are illiterate, can barely write English, and may have a criminal record in order to meet diversity quotas, it has been revealed.

    Yes, really.

    A 2014 promise to have 40% of the force be represented by ethnic minorities by 2023 has fallen well short, with just 17% of officers being from ‘diverse’ backgrounds.

    Matt Parr, the head of the organization responsible for inspecting British police forces, told the Telegraph that London, “which will likely be a minority white city in the next decade or so, should not be policed by an overwhelmingly white police force.”

    In addition to the optics of a largely white police force being wrong, Parr said it was also, “operationally wrong, because it means that the Met does not get insight into some of the communities it polices and that has caused problems in the past. So we completely support the drive to make the Met much more representative of the community it serves than it is at the moment.”

    That drive has however led to officers being hired who struggle to even write up basic crime reports.

    “They are taking in significant numbers of people who are, on paper at least, functionally illiterate in English,” said Parr, adding that the Met was “recruiting the wrong people” and that the diversity push had “lowered standards.”

    However, Parr also noted that it was a good thing that the Met was “taking a risk” by hiring young black men who may have criminal records.

    David Spencer, the head of the think tank Policy Exchange and a former Metropolitan Police officer, said that the diversity drive had lowered standards.

    “There is a tension between volume, quality and diversity and something has to give,” Spencer explained. “Someone has to ask what is the most important of those three things and you have to be really careful because once you have recruited someone they are possibly going to be there for the next 30 years.”

    As we previously highlighted, police resources in London are so stretched that major department stores have given up on calling them to catch shoplifters.

    Car theft in London has effectively been decriminalized, with just 277 out of 55,000 offences being solved by Scotland Yard, a 0.5% success rate.

    However, there still appears to be plenty of resources available to interrogate people for posting offensive social media posts.
