The Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) secured another gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Games, this time through a quartet of their women beating rivals France by a score of 45-34 in the foil fencing final on Thursday.

The team – Marta Martyanova, 22, Larisa Korobeynikova, 34, Adelina Zagidullina, 28, and Inna Deriglazova, 31 – have now cemented their place in Olympic and national history with their escapades in the Japanese capital.

Struggling with injury, the youngest player of the group Martyanova has been singled out for praise by putting in an “amazing” performance. (RT)
