The BRICS Games were held in Kazan

Last weekend, the BRICS Games, which were promoted by Kremlin propaganda as an "alternative Olympics," ended in Kazan, Russia. The competitions turned into a real laughingstock and circus - in some events, Russian representatives won gold without rivals.

The Sports.ru portal found out a new detail that proves the true level of the competition. The journalists found that as many as 20 countries that were among the 90 participants in the Games did not send a single athlete.

Only the gymnast Victoria Perisik, who competed for Russia last year, was announced for France. Many other countries have only one or two athletes, and often do not even specify the sports in which they compete. Italy and Japan were represented only in the breakaway.

Earlier, Lithuanian wrestler Andrius Mazeika won the BRICS Games, although he was at home and did not travel to the aggressor country to compete. And Russian synchronized swimmer Alexander Maltsev won gold without any rivals.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, the commentator of the BRICS Games, Vladimir Ivanitsky, got into a major scandal by claiming the genetic superiority of the Russians.
