“I’m experiencing a new adventure: the selection in the outdoor pool had to swim under an incredible tropical downpour and under the deafening sound of thunder. The organizers even told us that we didn’t have to go to the start, we would be allowed in. the final anyway.

But I went to the start and showed such a time. We were told that evening departures would be canceled or postponed if the rain didn’t stop and lightning started to flash. This will already be life-threatening. I am ready to start, but little depends on me,” Match TV quotes Efimova.
