The swimmer who competed for Great Britain revealed the reason for moving to Russia

Swimmer Belonogoff explained her move to Russia due to bad attitude in Britain

Swimmer Tatyana Belonogoff, who competed for Great Britain, revealed the reason for moving to Russia. Her words are quoted by RIA Novosti.

The athlete said that she was treated poorly in the UK, and this was another reason to move to Russia. “There were times when I was supposed to compete, but I wasn’t accepted for unknown reasons,” she explained. Belonogoff noted that she always considered herself Russian and wanted to play for the national team.

Belonogoff decided to compete for the Russian national team in February 2020. Previously, she competed for Great Britain.

Belonogoff’s mother is Russian. The athlete lived her whole life in the UK, but in 2019 she moved to St. Petersburg.

Belonogoff is a European junior champion. She became the strongest at a distance of 50 meters breaststroke. At the Russian Championships in 2024, she managed to win at the same distance.
