“Prize money is, of course, good, but we love winning.” Frolkina sisters about Spartakiad bronze in basketball

Spartakiad bronze medalists of the strongest basketball players Olga and Evgenia The Frolkins told that the prize money was not the main motivation for entering the tournament, and also admitted that it was mentally difficult to connect to the match for bronze after losing the semi-finals.

In the bronze medal match of the Spartakiad women’s basketball tournament, the Kursk region team, for which the sisters played, defeated the Moscow region team on Monday – 78 :69. The gold went to the team from Moscow, which defeated the team from the Sverdlovsk region in the final (74:54).

– After today’s final, Anna Leshkovtseva and Anastasia Logunova will each have two Spartakiad medals – both in classic basketball and in 3×3. Why not you ?

“But we don’t even know!” We weren’t even asked. The Kursk region did not participate in the Spartakiad and, perhaps, could not enter the team. Even if we would like to play. We missed 3×3 basketball very much,” the sisters told the correspondent.

– The match for bronze must always be played against a background of disappointment from the semi-finals. What does it do?

– Much better today! We are very happy,” said Evgenia Frolkina.

– Yesterday we were upset, of course. Yes, indeed, it was not easy mentally to meet for one more match. But now, finally, we feel joy and relief,” Olga added.

– For you, the Spartakiad is more of a tournament or an opportunity to compete for cash prizes?

“Of course, we were aware of the prize money…” Olga Frolkina said.

“…That’s good, of course. But above all, we like to win. For the team and for ourselves, – said Evgenia.

– The start of the club season is approaching, Dynamo Kursk and I are actively preparing for it, and we were happy to finally be able to play basketball. And the price is a nice bonus, ”says Olga Frolkina.

– Very pleasant! Evgeniya added.
