The 25-year-old champion complained about her struggles on social media, stressing that her “curvy figure” creates difficulties in her sporting career.

I inherited a gorgeous body shape from my parents, but in sport these curves can really bother you. While the majority of women are trying to bulk up their buttocks, I’m struggling to make them flat,” the swimmer wrote.

She also shared a video showing exercises which help to solve to her ‘problem.’

Chigireva and the rest of her teammates resumed full-time training in June after a lengthy hiatus caused by the Covid-19 crisis.

The swimmer, who possesses 11 world and three European titles, in addition to Olympic gold, is getting ready to defend her title at next year’s Summer Games in Tokyo.
