She reappeared on the ice two days later, this time ready for a night out, but she ran the 60 metres in 8.11 seconds instead. Reacting to Russian coverage of the event, the country’s u-23 Indoor Championships, one YouTube user commented: “Big earrings and eye lashes when competing in sports? Only in Russia.”
