Veronika Andrusenko: “it’s a Little heavy in the first training sessions after the break»

Russian swimmer Veronika Andrusenko shared her emotions from the resumption of training in the pool.

“In Kazan, people are allowed to enter the pool in masks and gloves. You go in and they take your temperature, spray your hands with antiseptic when you take off your gloves. There are one or two people on the track, so as not to violate discipline and social distance. Coaches on the boards are wearing masks and gloves.

But the water feels amazing! You know how much you missed it, why you were in a bad mood.

However, it is a little heavy in the first training sessions after the break. Yes, we tried to keep ourselves in good shape at home, trained, and even bought a treadmill, but we didn’t have enough work to do. In water, the density is different, and everything is heavy, a big load on the shoulders. But the feeling of being in the water is very high, you realize how much you missed it and how much you were waiting for it, ” – said Andrusenko.

Swimmer Anton Chuprov: “I only “for” that CSKA signed a contract with Goncharenko. He is up to the task»

Two-time world champion in swimming Anton Chuprov told about the love of football and CSKA.

  • I support CSKA. And for hockey, by the way, too. But football is way better. You can’t even compare them. Football is always my favorite.

– How do you feel about Viktor Goncharenko?

– He is building a new team, there is a change of generations. There are a lot of young people in the team. I even know Ivan Oblakova.

I only “for” that with Goncharenko resigned the contract. I know that many fans support him. It’s not easy for him. There are no big high-profile transfers. And he tries to export on what he has. I think he’s doing his job.

– You even once made the first shot at the ball in a match between CSKA and Krasnodar. How did the fans receive you?

– You’re standing in the middle of a football field. The stands are almost full, everyone is chanting and applauding. Unreal feelings.

A little like the ones I feel when I climb on the starting table before a swim. Still, it’s different in football, because there are fan sectors. They actually charge.

– Have you ever been to the “fan”?

– Been. However, not on the bottom and on the top of the podium. I enjoyed it. If I had the opportunity, I would have watched all the matches there and supported my favorite club.

Everything is there to match the style of CSKA. Chants I know: “CSKA, CSKA only, you’ll always be the champion!” – told Chepkov.

Australian swimmer Shaina Jack on four-year suspension: “The worst aspect of the anti-doping system is the presumption of guilt»

Four-time 2017 swimming world Cup medallist Shaina Jack said she was preparing for a hearing in CAS over a four-year suspension for doping.

In 2019, a blood sample taken on the eve of the world Cup tested positive for ligandrol.

“Now the real battle begins. Today, I received additional notice of my hearing at the court of arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Almost 12 months ago, my world was turned upside down by allegations of using illegal drugs. Despite the fact that all my life I was clean and knew that I did not use any illegal substances, my life changed overnight, and I found myself in an unknown world of lawyers, politics and fraud, which was completely foreign to me.

This process was extremely difficult and sometimes exhausting. Many aspects of the anti – doping system have serious flaws, but perhaps the worst of them is the presumption of guilt. Which system initially assumes that you are guilty of the alleged violation and holds you responsible for proving your innocence?

Now I have the opportunity to fight for my career and reputation. I intend to win this fight, go back to the pool and be a member of the Australian team again. Everyone knows what it’s like to have something valuable taken away from you, and I’m no different,” Jack wrote.

Two-time world champion in swimming Eugene Rylov shared his opinion about possible problems with holding the Olympics in Tokyo in 2021 due to coronavirus.

There will be no Olympics next year – Yes, I will be upset, but there is nothing I can do about it. It is clear that the plans were different, but they will have to change depending on how it will be there.

I’m not afraid to go out to train and to call on the database if you open them in the near future. The most common precautions, if they are followed, if everything is well organized and if all the guys follow them, they will help protect themselves from the coronavirus,” Rylov said.
