Why do Russian women perform well only in worthless sports like Gymnastics?

If you see the Olympics medal tally, you would notice that Russia wins medals in worthless sports like Gymnastics, Marathon and synchronized swimming. Though Russian men do well in Wrestling, boxing and some other sports, but Russian females only win in gymnastics, synchronized swimming and marathon.

Russian women don't win medals in strength demanding sports like boxing, wrestling, weightlifting, judo, rowing, rugby and football. Why is it so?? Genetics or something else.

    i think you are generalizing and it is probably similar for a lot of other nations too, not just Russia
