“If we talk about synchronized swimming, then we can already say with confidence that the Olympics will not take place for us. What can I say about this… I have everything. I have Olympic gold and all the world championship awards. I don’t regret it in any way. Yes, I wanted to go to Paris and for this I stayed in sports. But I didn’t shed a single tear when I learned that fate had decreed otherwise.
Nothing, this is life, this is experience. Without any regret, I will take part in the magnificent competitions organized by our country – the BRICS Games and the World Friendship Games. I’m sure that they will be no lower, and maybe even higher, than the Olympics,” Kolesnichenko said in an interview with RT.
Earlier, Kolesnichenko explained why she decided to become an ambassador of the TRP.
