The 25-year-old recently made her TV debut by appearing in a music video with Russian singer Yury Kiselev, known under the nickname Yurkiss.

The Olympic gold medalist shared the backstage footage where she ‘dances’ under the water wearing a white cocktail dress taking up the role of a mermaid.

Does anyone plan to film the Little Mermaid movie? I have been waiting for this role all my life,” Chigireva wrote joking that she was late for Disney’s cast last time.

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

Russia’s ‘mermaids’, as the country’s synchronized swimmers are often called, have been unbeaten on the international stage for 20 years since winning at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney.
