"Let's stay in the s**t". Khorkina declares Russia's greatness and is ridiculed online
Two-time Olympic gymnastics champion Svetlana Khorkina has said that even if Russian gymnasts are not allowed to participate in the 2024 Olympics in Paris, her country will "still remain at the top" of the sport. According to the 44-year-old United Russia MP, the Olympic Games will be incomplete if they are held without Russians.
"Artistic gymnastics has been, is and will continue to develop in Russia. Because it is a basic sport. Whatever one may say, I will still believe that our women's and men's teams are the current Olympic champions," Khorkina said on Match TV.
In the comments, this passage of the 9-time Russian champion caused a flurry of anger among her compatriots.
"Svetlana Khorkina: "Even if the Olympics? 2024 will be held without us, we will remain in the top. Svetlana said everything correctly, but she got one word wrong. Instead of top, it should be s**t," users mock.
Others advise her to continue living in a parallel world.
"It's like thinking that the subsoil of the earth belongs to the people of the Russian Federation, although the idiots who think so have not even read the constitution," users write.
Many fans could not contain their emotions when commenting on Khorkina's words.
"A corrupt former athlete, doesn't she think about anything?", "She has a mouth and she eats into it," Russian sports fans are outraged.
