The interlocutor of the agency added that on the second day of the competition Alena Parshina from Tomsk had set a Russian record and exceeded the European record in the "Sport diving" discipline at a distance of 100 meters. “She just exceeded it, it will not be counted as a European record, because there was no doping control. Alena won another medal today - “Apnoea finswimming 50 meters”, - she noted.

"In a pandemic, preparation was done in a very short time, because our swimming pool was launched in August. This is very little. In such difficult conditions, athletes were able to prepare and adequately represent the Tomsk region at the Russian Championship. This is very great", - Grechikhina said.

Earlier it was reported that in 2019 the team of the Tomsk region took the third place in the overall team competition, losing to the Novosibirsk region and the Krasnoyarsk Krai. For the first time, the competition took place in Tomsk, at the "Zvezdny" water sports center.
