Either the moderators very quickly cleared up all the "sick fantasies" of the neighbors, or many of the Russians who left comments sympathized with Yaroslava and were impressed with the results of the Diamond League in Paris, as they thought Kostadinova's record was eternal and noted that Mahuchikh lives up to her last name. mighty.

"Holy shit, it turned out that the record was not eternal, as it was supposed to be," "High jumpers seem to me to be the most beautiful athletes. Mahuchikh is very beautiful! The skinny ones push off and fly, fly, fly...", – commented in the Russian Federation.

"We can't wait for this long-standing Bulgarian record to fall. There have been so many great high-rise women during this time – Blanka, Kaisa, Kluti, Lasitskeni... But no. And now – finally! Yaroslava is a great one! Someone else needs to break the record in the long jump.

Although it is difficult for Russian fans to forget the Ukrainian's behavior towards Russians, her talent cannot be ignored: "I like this girl, even though I think her behavior was incorrect at the time. She is a very beautiful and memorable athlete, and I am happy for her. She broke such a record, Blanka Vlasic couldn't, Chicherova couldn't, Lasitskene couldn't, and she did it, well done!"

Even with such a fantastic result, there was talk behind the curb that although the achievement is important, the record is "so-so" without decent competition. Hinting that the psychological situation would not be the same without the Russians and, in particular, Olympic champion Maria Lasitskene.

"Well done, of course, but without competition, it's a so-so record..." said a fan from Russia. "Why does the absence of competition make the record less prestigious?" another asked in response and got a response: "Because the psychological situation is completely different."

"And who can compete with her with such results? Lasitskene, who is already a downed pilot, or what?" the discussion continued in the comments.

Some people also wrote that they were looking forward to Lasitskene's world record, but it turned out to be beyond her. Maria managed only 206 cm.

"World athletics is dying without Russia..." one of the readers of the sports resource wrote either as a joke or in all seriousness in response to the fall of the record, which had been held for almost four decades.
