In the Italian city of Lignano Sabbiadoro, the world championship in underwater sports took place. The junior divers have competed for the best results in disciplines such as fins swimming, classic fins swimming, scuba diving and long diving.

As part of the junior national team of the Russian Federation, Marina Shushkina, a pupil of the sports school (Olympic reserve, complex) of the CSKA branch (SKA, St. Petersburg), went to Italy to participate in the competitive program of the world championship. The army athlete showed a high result and brought the Russian team gold and bronze medals.

Marina Shushkina, together with Diana Sliseva, Daria Arzamastseva and Ksenia Sidorkina, showed the best result of 2 minutes and 42.79 seconds in swimming with fins within the 4×100 meters relay, ahead of the Ukrainian team by 0.67 seconds.

The Italians finished third with a score of 2 minutes and 48.52 seconds.

The army pupil won the bronze medal in swimming with fins at a distance of 50 meters, finishing with a result of 18.56 seconds.

The first at the finish was the Russian athlete Diana Sliseva with a result of 17.80 seconds. The second place was taken by the representative of Hungary Sara Suba (18.42 seconds).

Marina Shushkina was trained by Maria Pavlovna Stepanova, a coach of the sports school (Olympic reserve, complex) of the CSKA branch (SKA, St. Petersburg).

According to the results of the performance of young swimmers, the Russian national team won the first team place in the medal standings.

“Due to the pandemic, the atmosphere was quiet and calm, there were few people, everyone swam their distance at a certain time. We talked mainly with the guys from our team and with the coaches. To get to competitions of this level, one had to first go to the Russian Championship, and then, according to its results, get into the Russian national team. After I got into the junior national team, I began to intensively prepare for the World Championship. Excitement, of course, was present, because for the first time I participated in competitions of this level, but thanks to my coach Maria Pavlovna Stepanova, I was not so worried before the starts. For me, the most difficult distance turned out to be 100 meters in monofin, since it was the first start, and I was the first to compete in the team, ”the army athlete commented on her participation in the World Championship in underwater sports to the press center of CSKA, St. Petersburg.
