Russian athlete Daria Klishina spoke about the difference in the training systems of athletes in the United States and Russia. Live on YouTube was hosted by the Moscow Sports Department.
The 29-year-old jumper admitted that she had never regretted moving to the United States. The athlete noted that the American system of training athletes is significantly different from the Russian one. One of the features Klishina called the rejection of the peak athletes in winter, which is practiced in Russia.
She separately noted the duration of the warm-up in American training. “When I arrived in the USA, for me the warm-up was the same as training,” she said.
In addition, Klishina emphasized that American athletes can use the phones during class. Athletes can thus familiarize themselves with the sequence of exercises.
Klishina moved to the United States in 2013 and has since been living and training there. The 29-year-old athlete is a two-time European champion and silver medalist in the 2017 World Cup.
