OLGA FROLKINA: “PLAYING WITH A TWIN SISTER IN THE SAME TEAM IS EVEN BAD, BECAUSE WE ONLY PASS TO EACH OTHER”
Russian 3 × 3 basketball players Olga and Evgenia Frolkin told what it was like for them to compete together as twin sisters. – In sports, twins are the best in mutual understanding, it is at the genetic level. How does this happen with you? Olga: Sometimes they say it’s even bad. Because we only give passes to each other! It’s getting better now. But I still see Zhenya better on the playground. Eugenia: With us, it is more expressed in feelings. If my sister is in a bad mood, then I’m in a bad mood. Because she spoils it for me! I’m kidding. But we also support each other in a special way. It is clear that nothing will work for the team if the sisters do not stand behind each other. Olga: Yes, the world revolves around us. On July 28, the Frolkina sisters celebrate their 24th anniversary. On this day, the Russian national team will compete for the first ever Olympic medals in 3 × 3 basketball. In the semifinals, the Russians will play against China.
