It is important to note that the Russian championship was a qualifier for the Russian national team for the Mondial 2020 civilian world championship, which will be held in Tanaj in August 2021.

“Of course, I am pleased with the result with the performance. At this start, I made 11 jumps and only in five of them the devices recorded the results. According to the classics, when we jump for accuracy, it also happens, if they give a jump-off, in the wind or for some other reason, then the result is also not recorded. Here, too, there seems to be a jump schedule, but the result was not recorded, ” Elena Laktionova told the CSKA press center. – I’m already used to recovering quickly between starts. Now there is an opportunity to rest a little. I’ll return home to Pskov now, I’ll come to my senses in a day. Now our youth team is training in Pskov, maybe I’ll go and jump with them for accuracy. And then on July 17 we are going to Samara to prepare for the championship of the Armed Forces. “

Elena also clarified how the result is recorded in this discipline: “We jump from 4000 and at about 1700 we start to slow down and open up. And the result of the “speed fall” itself is recorded between the altitude of 2700 to 1700. Special devices add up the entire result and calculate the average speed. “

According to the results of the Russian championship, Elena Laktionova was selected for the Russian national team to participate in the “speed fall” discipline at the world championship, which will be held in August in Tanai and Kemerovo.

“It turned out that for Mondial I qualified for the team according to the results of the Russian championship in Rybinsk, and now I also got into the Russian team in the“ speed fall ”discipline. But I don’t know for sure if I can combine and perform at the World Championships in these two exercises. Competitions in the classics will be held in Kemerovo, and in speed – in Tanai. In any case, we will prepare, and then how will it turn out, ”said Elena Laktionova.
