Russian gymnast Aleksandra Soldtova, world and European champion, denied in social networks that she had attempted suicide by cutting her veins, as previously reported by the local press. “What the press writes is horrible, it is totally false. Yesterday I was going to train, In the morning I prepared breakfast and cut myself, they are things that happen, since the knives are sharp. I'm a gymnast, I'm a rookie in the kitchen“Soldtova said in her coach's Instagram account.

Soldtova, 21, said she decided to go to the hospital after concluding that the wound was better than “closed and healed a professional” than herself. “I went to the hospital, warned the coach to be a little late. The story ended ah. And in the press they write horrible things: that the veins are cut, “he explained, arguments backed by his coach, Anna Diachenko. In addition, he insisted that he is perfectly well, to continue with his workouts and confirm that he will compete in the upcoming tournaments.

Supposedly, Soldtova herself assured the press before that she had committed “a fool.” “I was scared and immediately ran to the hospital,” he added, after what the Russian Olympic Committee gave him a “speedy recovery.” According to Russian press reports, Soldtova went to the Sklifosovski Institute in Moscow on his own foot, where doctors discovered marks on his left grimace, although they have ruled that his life is not in danger.
