The Russian team took the fourth place in the unofficial medal standings. Our athletes won nineteen awards of the higher test. However, impressive victories and climbing on pedestals – it’s not all that fans will remember about the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
A few months before the main starts of the fourth anniversary of the Russian athletes came under terrible pressure from the unfolding doping scandal. For violating anti-doping rules of the IOC was suspended from the Olympic Games all athletes of Russia. The road to the awards has closed for 103 athletes. One of them came and celebrated vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva, which was planned for the Olympics in Rio victorious conclusion to his career. Two-time Olympic champion was very emotional over his dismissal, to the last fighting for the participation of Russian athletes in the Olympics. Queen of the pole did not skimp on positions in social networks, where, in particular, talked about the fact that the winner of the Olympics in pole vaulting without it will still be second. By the way, in the championship of Russia in which Yelena Isinbayeva took part in June of this year, she showed the best result of the season in the world. And he was not beaten at the Olympics in Rio. Who took the gold of the Greek Catherine, Stefanidi not enough five centimeters to Isinbayeva.

Daria was actively preparing for performances at the Olympics, but on 13 August the international Association of athletics federations said that still removes Klishina from competition on the basis of new information. Russian high jumper appealed this decision, and in the end Klishina allowed to compete. However, the athlete managed to take only the ninth place.

My father told me that competition is something like a holiday, something positive. But this competition was just terrible,” the athlete shared his feelings about the Olympics. Its sporty character and will to win was stronger than all obstacles. Yuliya Efimova won in Rio two silver medals in the 100m and 200m breaststroke.
