Silver weight in gold
On the third day of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, our gymnasts up on the second step of the podium in the team all-around, and Yulia Efimova took second place in the one hundred meters breaststroke. Russian team in artistic gymnastics as part of Denis Ablyazin, David Bielawski, Ivan Stretovych, Nicholas Kuksenkova and Nikita Nagorno scored 271.453 points and took second place, losing only five out of Japan. And the silver for many became a sensation: our athletes not only won the first Olympic medal in 16 years, but really fighting for gold. This is an incredible success, considering that in London our gymnasts won the team competition in only sixth place.
 
 Swimmer Yuliya Efimova at the end of last week did not know whether it will participate in the Olympics. And all this time continued to train. She arrived in Rio de Janeiro is almost on the eve of his first Olympic start. And won silver in the one hundred meters breaststroke, losing to American King Lilly just one second.
 And for us, this silver medal - its weight in gold!
 
 Today, we will once again support our swimmers and wrestlers, shooters, sports gymnasts and fencers.
We believe in victory! Good luck!
