Maltsev won the BRICS Games

Russian synchronized swimmer Alexander Maltsev has achieved a "phenomenal" result at the BRICS Games, which Russia organized in Kazan and calls an alternative to the 2024 Olympics. The swimmer became the first in the free program and took the gold medal, and he had no rivals.

Maltsev was the only one to compete in this event. He scored 211.654 points and climbed to the podium alone. After his "enchanting" performance, the athlete added that he was not embarrassed by the lack of rivals.

"I was more in tune to show the best possible performance of the program. The main thing is to be able to perform here at the BRICS Games," Maltsev said.

The Russian had a harder time in the technical program. Here he had only one opponent, a representative of Thailand. Maltsev outscored his opponent by 58 points.
