MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. Russian Olympic champion in high jumps Anna Chicherova will miss this year the country’s traditional winter-time indoor field and track event Russian Winter, her coach Yevgeny Zagorulko told TASS on Tuesday.
"Anna will skip the Russian Winter," Zagorulko said in an interview with TASS, but did not specify the reason for the athlete’s absence. "I am not ruling out whether she will be participating in the Russian winter championship."
"Chicherova just recently returned from training sessions in South Africa and will now continue training for the most important competition of the year, which is the 2016 Olympics," Chicherova’s coach added.
Yury Borzakovsky, the head coach of the Russian athletics team, told media late last month that Chicherova was enrolled in the 2016 Russian Winter competition, held annually since 1992.
Besides packing the gold of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, Chicherova is also the bronze medalist of the 2008 Summer Olympics in China’s Beijing.
Russia’s 33-year-old high jumper is the winner of the 2011 IAAF World Championships in Athens, the vice champion of the 2007 and 2009 IAAF World Championships and the bronze medalist of the 2013 and 2015 World Championships.
