Maria Lasitskene suspended from international tournaments

Olympic high jump champion Maria Lasitskene complained that her income had halved due to the suspension of international competitions. Despite all the pompous speeches of the authorities, the Russian athlete admitted that domestic tournaments are losing out to continental and world championships in terms of commerce.

Lasitskene said this in a comment to Sport24. The winner of the 2020 Games in the sector where Ukrainian Yaroslava Mahuchykh is practically unrivaled today, noted that she needs to win all Russian tournaments without exception to cover the prize money from winning one stage of the Diamond League.

"What does a professional athlete live on? Speaking about me, I lost more than half of my earnings - that's a fact. The contract with the outfitter, the Diamond League, bonus money from the outfitter. These are big losses that no one is going to reimburse and I don't think they will. In Russia, unfortunately, I need to win all the competitions for the year to somehow regain my victory in one Diamond League. It's incomparable, it's sad and sad," Lasitskene said.
