According to the newspaper “Kamsamolskaya Pravda”, Vesnina has not yet received her medals, because the police are detaining them as part of the investigation.
Vesnina won the silver medal in mixed doubles tennis at the last Olympics in Tokyo with her compatriot Aslan Karatsev, and also won the gold medal in women’s doubles at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro with her compatriot Ekaterina Makarova.
