Rhythmic gymnast Elizaveta Polstyanaya spoke about the change of sports citizenship.

“In fact, in 2016 we chose. After performing at the Baltic Hoop, international competitions in Riga, I was noticed. Two proposals were received at once: from Israel and Latvia. We accepted the second, because this country is close to me. I was born there, plus every summer we went there to rest. The parents have many friends. Therefore, the procedure for obtaining citizenship began. I went through everything completely, passed the exam for knowledge of the Latvian language. And only in 2018 I received the documents. In fact, both parents and me it cost a lot of effort. I learned the language, and the rest of the time I performed at domestic competitions in Latvia outside the competition to show my level. And only in the middle of 2018 she won the Latvian Cup and went to the European Championship, ”Polstyanaya said in an interview with RT.
