Announcement from @power_mayan:
I am leaving the game !!!
I am leaving undefeated, I am leaving at the peak of my career and at the peak of my strength. This is the most difficult decision in my life, this decision with tears in my eyes, this decision with pain in my heart. Only now that I realize how much I love powerlifting. I did what no one could do, I wrote a new story. I did everything possible to make women's powerlifting interesting. I showed femininity and incredible strength together. Yes, I know I can still set many records, I can climb the platform for many more years, but ........
I need to be able to stop. In sports, as in gambling, the main thing is to stop on time. I need to be able to admit to yourself that I’m tired. In 10 years in powerlifting, I have had no one injury. As much as I would not want to experience the feeling of victory over and over again, to receive from the recognition of the fans, I would not want to get some kind of injury. I'm leaving healthy.
I write these words and my heart beats faster and I do not see the text, because my eyes are filled with tears😭 I tear myself away from what I have lived for the last 10 years. I leave the platform but leave my name in powerlifting (hopefully for a long time) and a piece of myself in the form of my record tasks.
I am grateful to everyone who supported me over the years, for their faith in me and for their kind words. I want to express my deep respect to all my competitors, all the ladies I once met on the platform. Thanks to the organisers of all the competitions, you are doing the hard work. The judges who judged me , my obeisances forever for you. Thank you very much to @russakern for the biggest prizes ever, you gave a new breath to this sport and athletes a lot of motivation. Thanks to all my sponsors, I was happy to work with you. And of course, the main person in my life, my favorite coach @dr.power_sergy who started it all. You gave me all of this, you made me the best and strongest on the planet, you made my worst performance still the best. You always supported me and even now, I love you very much and thank you.
