Member of the Glorax Life team and professional athlete Andrey Kurnosov showed good results at the 29th Russian Swimming Championships in the Masters category, having won 5 medals. He conquered the following categories:

50m FREESTYLE – 23.98
4×50m FREESTYLE – RUSSIAN NATIONAL RECORD (23.42)
4×50m FREESTYLE MIXED (23.95)
4×50m COMBINED RELAY (BREAST STROKE 30.03)
4×50m COMBINED MIXED RELAY (BREAST STROKE 29.92)

“This tournament was very difficult for two reasons. First, the competition was a dress rehearsal for me before the European Championships, so I competed without reducing the training load. Secondly, six weeks ago I seriously injured my left arm (it was a radial bone fracture and a radiocarpal ligament rapture); thus, it became quite difficult for me to prepare and compete at the event. Now my physical and mental body state is essentially normal and the preparation continues,” – said Andrey.

Andrey Kurnosov has been a member of the Glorax Life team since 2017. During this time, he added many medals and awards to the team’s collection, including a gold medal in the 2018 European Championships in the Masters category.
