2013 Moscow kiss
Ryzhova made headlines after winning gold in the 4 × 400 metres relay at the 2013 World Championships in Athletics, and thereafter kissing her Russian teammates as they received medals on the podium. On 18 August 2013 SkyNews reported the photo of the kiss between Ryzhova and Yuliya Gushchina as a political gesture but later retracted and said that there was a "huge debate on Twitter and other media about whether it was in protest at the government's anti-gay law"—a law banning "homosexual propaganda" in Russia.
