When I was training I had a Russian trainer and therefore my answer is yes. I know some people think it's cruel, too much etc., but honestly I disagree. If you want to actually succeed, there's no other way in my opinion. I've never seen someone push themselves as much as when their trainers made them to. You won't win just by being great...Is all of Russia like this?! I'm kidding, but also not really. Or is this just how intensely all world-class athletes train?
Also, when they said how competitions were lowering standards so Europeans could compete... I would be ashamed in their position if I did not fit the standards.
She won that gold in Olympics in 2016, so... And her friend/colleague Yana won the silver.I'm convinced Margarita is the most mentally strong human on the planet
