It’s the best moment of my career. VESNINA

Elena was elated after winning this gold to comment

“It’s incredible. Ever since I was a little girl, I was watching the Olympic Games, and it was such a dream just to come here and get a medal for Russia, for my country and in front of my dad. We’ve been through so much, and yet we were so good today.

We stuck together, and we believed till the end that we could win. It’s just incredible; I still can’t believe that we won the gold. It’s the best moment in my career, I swear!”
