Kuznetsov: “We fight with our opponents, not with ourselves, Ivanov has grown three heads”

Olympic medalist in diving Evgeny Kuznetsov said his rival and Russian national team partner Grigori Ivanov was making significant progress.

Kuznetsov and Nikita Shleicher won the BetBoom Russian championship in diving on a three-meter springboard on Thursday. Egor Lapin and Ilya Molchanov came second. Third place went to Artem Makarov and Alexander Cherepakhin.

“The guys prepared hard and performed world-class jumps. Today it didn’t work at all – they and we made mistakes, so we can’t say we are fighting against ourselves. We fight with our rivals.

— What progress would you like to highlight specifically?

– Actually, you can name a lot of names, but for me personally, Grigori Ivanov stands out, he became three heads higher in his technical skills, in his performance. If he continues at the same pace, he will fight for the highest awards,” Kuznetsov said on .
