Athletistic/Tennis. Silver medalist at the 2020 Olympics and 22nd in the world, Russian tennis player Karen Khachanov explained her decision to refuse to participate in the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

“There are several reasons. Home – my schedule and calendar. Due to an injury last year, I did not play all summer. That is why I unfortunately had to make this difficult decision. I decided that it would be difficult for the body to move from grass to clay for a tournament, and then immediately, without preparation, to start playing hard. I still sometimes have a small problem because of this injury. This is a common problem, so I have to work a lot with a physiotherapist and a fitness trainer so that this does not happen,” Khachanov was quoted as saying by Ubitennis.
