“Secret weapon” of the Russian Olympians

Journalists from the United States are confident that the reason for the record number of medals at the Tokyo Olympics is the “secret weapon” of Russians. And they even claim to have found it.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Russian team possesses a “secret training weapon” thanks to which gold medals are so loved by Russian athletes. The American media cite geography as such. According to journalists, training on Sakhalin Island or in Vladivostok, for example, recreates the conditions of the Tokyo Olympics as much as possible, even the clock poles are the same. Therefore, the athletes there were able to prepare for the Games as efficiently as possible. And the closeness of some training camps to foreigners further increased the suspicions of journalists.

At the same time, conditions for American athletes were far from ideal – in the context of the pandemic, gyms in the country were closed. The Wall Street Journal states:

All this led to the fact that athletes from Russia at the Olympics “were so successful that sometimes the only people who prevented the Russians from winning gold were other Russians.”

Indeed, even the Russian Olympic Committee before the Tokyo Games hoped that Russian athletes would win at least 50 medals. To date, the Russian Olympic team has 53 of them, including 14 gold ones.
