“Sport is hard work and responsibility. Every athlete knows that it is impossible to achieve victory without daily, sometimes exhausting training, honing skills, bringing it to perfection. But there are also intangible, unpredictable factors - luck, someone's assessment, support in the stands.
This year, as well as at the Winter (Games) in 2018, it was harder for the athletes defending the honor of the country than usual. There was no flag, no anthem, no fans, and this is very important for us. Can you imagine the pressure, what incredible tension is an athlete who competes for the highest score - Olympic gold?
You can run faster, jump higher, more accurately shoot. Unfortunately, the judges' assessment is subjective. But it is valuable that despite all the difficulties, uncertainties and limitations, the Olympics did take place! And it is important to remember that the main assessment for our guys is the support of the country. Dina and Arina Averina are an example for many girls in our country! Our pride! Perfection!
Our golden girls! Remember, you weren't just fighting for gold. The main thing that you do is inspire for new achievements, work on yourself! The whole country is proud of you, and for us you are always winners! Sport should be outside politics, it should unite countries, peoples, people.
There can be no nationalities in it. It contains only strength, speed, beauty and an amazing reminder to everyone - that each person is capable of more. Thanks to athletes, each of us understands that the impossible is possible. And everyone can become the best version of themselves! Thank you girls for that! Hug tightly!" - wrote Zagitova.

Стал известен размер премии гимнастки Дины Авериной за олимпийское серебро в Токио 2021
Russian gymnast Dina Averina, who won a silver medal in individual all-around at the Tokyo 2021 Summer Olympics, will receive a monetary award from the state. Dina Averina unjustly received a silver medal instead of a gold one, and, of course, was very upset. But maybe she will be consoled by bonuses from the state treasury. Dina Averina is recognized as the most talked about person of the Olympic Games in Russia.
She was mentioned 63 thousand times in social networks. Indeed, in the finals of the rhythmic gymnastics competition, there was perhaps the loudest scandal at the Olympic Games. for the first time in 25 years, Russia was left without Olympic gold in rhythmic gymnastics. The arbitrators brought the Israeli Lina Ashram to the champion's title, having dropped the tape in the final form of the program, which is considered a gross violation. However, she bypassed Averina by only 0.15 points. The Russian side tried to appeal the decision of the judges, but the claim was rejected.
