“I want synchronized swimming to take place in the regions. I like how it develops here – in Kazan, in Tatarstan. I would like other regions to develop, for this we need swimming pools and infrastructure. This is a very beautiful sport. I admit, I once thought that this is a sport for women, but thanks to the boys who come to synchronized swimming, it develops and gets an impetus “, quotes the sports star on the official website of the Synchronized Swimming Federation.

In the championship it was announced that the composition of the national synchronized swimming team has changed.
