Olympic gold medal winner Alla Shishkina is going viral and it has nothing to do with her gold medals. It’s about what got her those gold medals. The Russian swimmer won gold at both the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympics. Alla talks about how sex can play an enormous role when it comes to competition.

She explains:

Via Daily Star:

“Having sex before an event which requires explosive power might be beneficial to your performance, according to a revelation from a triple Olympic champion.

Alla Shishkina won gold in the women’s team synchronised swimming at Tokyo 2020, repeating her feats from the two previous Games.

In an interview with Russian outlet Sport Express after the Games, she spoke of how she had asked the team doctor about how sex could impact her performance.

She said: “I relied on the research of doctors and consulted with Denis, our doctor. The scientific community says that if you need explosive power, you have to have sex.”

“And if there is long, cyclical work ahead, then probably not. But there are still nuances for each organism and you need to listen to yourself first. If you feel that sex helps, then go ahead.”

Shishkina added that increased arousal can have benefits for testosterone and muscle mass in women.”
