^^For once I agree with you playboy. I just talked to a family member about this, she is a two time gold limeades
and considered the greatest pole Vault- She said on her Instagram she sympathizes with the athletes but...
player safety comes first. Also, the Russians backed the I.O.C and they are big on the Olympics.
I won't give her name to protect her identity but if a two time gold medalist in Sydney and in Beijing is telling us to
postpone, then maybe we should postpone. It's just for a year anyways the Olympics will still go on.
I won't give her name but you can figure it out with this clip, She is giving us the perspective of the elite athlete and wanted me to share.
Side note, yes I know with those blue eyes and 8 pack she is smoking hot(it's in the genetics). She also tested clean and could have been..
on the coveted Russian gymnastics team however, she turned it down. Russian gymnasts and figure skaters are treated like cattle more than other athletes
Gold medalist champion Alina Zagitova echoed this statement.
She said the major challenge for athletes, will be the adjustment because athletes are on a strict regiment and train for a certain time period.
You are now asking them to train for another year and they were mentally prepared to start the games in the summer.
From her perspective, the challenges are more mental than physical.
