For the sake of my heart,
There appeared a perfect void
On the floating bridge,
A benefaction of the Lord.

From the article: "'We train with pleasure,' said 77-year-old Svetlana Tyukova, who has already survived a heart attack. 'We've already devoted 10 years to it. I can't just give it up. When we were told we would get a black belt one day, we were laughing and didn't really believe it."
