Russian Olympic long jumper Darya Klishina sat down for an interview with Russian media and talked about training in the United States. The 29-year-old, who currently lives and trains in Atlanta talked about the differences between the US and her home country.
During the interview Klishina revealed that a random man DM'd her on Instagram to try to get her to become an escort. After she declined the man told her that she could make $200,000 per month.
“Can you imagine? I was offered to provide escort services. It was less than six months ago. I was really shocked,” Klishina said, talking to sports.ru.
“An unknown man messaged me on Instagram. I’m not in the habit of being rude, but I adamantly rejected the offer.
“[I said] ‘Sorry, but I’m not interested in that.’ But he continued: ‘Oh please, don’t refuse it, you don’t know all the terms. I’m offering you a huge amount of money.’ He said I will earn $200,000 per month. I was just wondering do I really come across as an escort girl?”
Now I know she had to say no to the offer, but she might want to keep that DM just in case. She's 29 and being an Olympian doesn't last forever. I mean, what happens if she gets seriously injured? A strong six-month run could set her up for a few decades, just saying.
