Mariya Lasitskene is the best women’s high jumper on the globe. She has also been quite vocal in her absolute annoyance with RusAF.

MOSCOW (RUS): Responding to the news the RusAF still has not fully devised its restoration plan, three-time world high jump champion Mariya Lasitskene wrote on Instagram: “One of the advantages is the appointment of Margarita Pakhnotskaya. Everything else is another failure of the RusAF and the leadership of Russian sports. We continue to sit at home and listen to longstanding stories of progress in our relationship with World Athletics. Five years of shame. Happy anniversary!”
Mariya Lasitskene again a courageous voice of reason. Regardless of Russia’s sins, she’s an athlete who deserves to compete in Tokyo.https://t.co/zBVW99hI6f
