Swimmer Yevgeny Rylov became the first Russian in the 21st century to win the Olympic Games. In 2021 in Tokyo, he took the gold medal in the 100m backstroke and 200m backstroke. He also won a silver medal in the 4×200 m freestyle relay. The athlete is already asking questions about the end of his career – in light of the cancellation of the Russians at the FINA starts, regarding the political situation.

Rylov himself thinks when that time will come. And he shared his plans for ending his career during the Knowledge Society education marathon.

“I think the next Olympics. And then I will finish. It seems 25 or 28 years old to some, but the distances are already more difficult. I have a goal. I want to be the fastest in the world. Until I got it. “Yes, I have world records, but anyway,” RIA Novosti quoted the champion.

Yevgeny Rylov since childhood dreamed of swimming faster than anyone. He could become a footballer or a volleyball player – he had skills, but he had a special passion for water. At the age of 17, he already became an Olympic champion at the Youth Games in China.
