So, on July 30, Vitalina Batsarashkina (pistol shooting from 25 meters) and Yevgeny Rylov (backstroke at a distance of 200 meters) became Olympic champions. They both set an Olympic record in their respective sports. Earlier, Batsarashkina won gold and silver at the Olympic Games-2020. Rylov showed the same performance.
The Russians also managed to win silver in the team championship in epee. Sergey Bida, Sergey Khodos, Pavel Sukhov and Nikita Glazkov lost to the Japanese national team with a score of 36:45.
Russian woman Elena Osipova also won silver in the individual archery program. In the final, she lost to Ahn Sang from South Korea.
Another silver went to Anna Prakaten in single rowing. This medal became the first in Russian history in this type of competition, the last time athletes got on the podium back in the days of the USSR. Practically lost to the representative of New Zealand Emma Twigg.
Judoka Tamerlan Bashaev won bronze in the weight category of 100 kg. In the fight for third place, he defeated the Ukrainian Jacob Hammo.
However, one incident almost overshadowed the joy of Rylov's victory. Silver winner Ryan Murphy criticized the admission of Russian athletes to the competition, calling the swim "unclean". Later, he nevertheless said that he had no complaints about Rylov, adding that the criticism was directed towards the International Swimming Federation. “Once again we were convinced that it was a misunderstanding. We have never had any claims to each other, we remain good rivals. We both stand for clean sport”, - the Russian athlete said.
