Medals stolen by Elena Vesnina

The unenviable situation of the Russian tennis player Elena Vesnina, after her Olympic medals while she was away from her home.


Vesnina said today after the accident that she went to dinner with my husband and when I came back the medals were not there as well as personal jewelry and important documents, I kept them in a sports bag, because I showed them to the girls at the tennis club in the city.


The Russian player won the gold medal in the women's doubles in Rio de Janeiro 2016 and the silver medal in the mixed doubles in Tokyo 2021.
