Sportswomen from Yamal Adelina Ibatullina and Gulnaz Gubaidullina won medals at the Championship of Russia in modern pentathlon among women. In Moscow the northern sportswomen competed with 36 strongest sportswomen-pentathletes of the country.
Gulnaz Gubaidullina traditionally was the best in swimming. But in the laser-run after fencing and riding she ran out the ninth, lagging behind the leader by 77 seconds, as the regional department on physical culture and sports informs.
Adelina lost 16 seconds to the leader and started from the second place. As a result, Gulnaz, having shown the best result in the laser-run, managed to win the bronze medal. Adelina became the champion; she was ahead of Ulyana Batashova by 17 seconds at the finish, having won the golden medal.
As it should be noted, both girls are athletes-instructors in the Center for Olympic training in Yamal. 20-year-old Adelina Ibatullina won the golden medal of the Russian championship for the first time in her career.
