Our girls are now very well prepared technically, functionally and psychologically, and I hope that they will continue to dominate not only in Russia but also to become the world leader in the nearest future”.

It should be noted that at the end of the World Championships the Russian national team moved from seventh to fifth place in the world ranking, ahead of Denmark and China teams.
