Stars from the world of figure skating and synchronized swimming will compete in the second season of the At-Home Super League, an online burpee tournament, which will be held on 27 May at 19:00. The project was organized by the Roscongress Foundation and Telesport Media and sponsored by the Odnoklassniki social network.
Burpee is a full body exercise in which you repeatedly lift yourself up and down from the ground. This exercise involves all muscle groups and quickly raises the pulse to the fat burning zone, and so is one of the most highly recommended for training when in self-isolation. The athletes will try to complete the maximum number of burpees in one minute. The At-Home Super League will be won by the team that can do the most reps in total.
The synchronized swimming team includes two-time Olympic champion Alla Shishkina, 2016 Olympics gold-medal winner Maria Shurochkina, and five-time world champions Polina Komar and Veronika Kalinina. They will be opposed by a team of figure skaters, which includes the 2020 Europen champion and 2019 World silver medalist Victoria Sinitsina, the 2019 European single skating champion Sofia Samodurova, the 2020 European champion in pair skating Alexandra Boikova and the 2019 pair skating junior world champion Anastasia Mishina. The burpee technique will be monitored by the main judge of the At-Home Super League, Russian national football team doctor Eduard Bezuglov.
You can watch the online broadcast of the At-Home Super League on the website of the Roscongress Foundation and the Roscongress TV channel on YouTube, Tele-sport.ru and in the public profile of Telesport Media on the Odnoklassniki social network.
