When I came across this article for the first time, I was absolutely fascinated by the living and training conditions provided in Novogorsk Center. I am sure that these facilities are of great use for all the gymnasts who live and train there. Now I want to share this interesting information and pictures with all of you.

    1. This is a fans website devoted to Evgeniya Kanaeva not a gymnastics training center. This article is just to introduce the Russian training center “Novogorsk” where the Russian RG national team trains there. If you want to send your daughter to Novogorsk, please contact Russian RG Federation. This is their website: http://www.vfrg.ru/ E-mail: vfrg@roc.ru
    2. This is the website of Novogorsk Training Center: http://www.novogorsksport.ru/ Please google the map. Sorry I don’t know how to get there. I have never traveled Russia.
    3. I can’t help sorry…I am Taiwanese and I am just a RG fan.

    My name is Kavita and i am from India. My daughter who is 13 is a rhythmic gymnast.
    1. I am interested in sending her for training to your center. What is the process and cost?
    2. I am travelling to Moscow next week ( June 10-17th) how do i reach the center from Moscow?
    3. I want to buy a leotard in moscow or St petersburg. Can you help me get an address
    Thank you

  3. ZKG-Zoe Wan says:

    @Shannon_Tan, sorry I don’t know. I am not Son’s fan, you should ask this question in her fans pages or her fans websites.

  4. Shannon_Tan says:

    how to contacr her agency ?

  5. ZKG-Zoe Wan says:

    @Richard, sorry I don’t know, I have never been to Novogorsk.
    I think Son spends more time in Korea than in Russia, and I read news she just returned to Korea after worlds. Plus She has many public appearance, you have many chances to give her letter in Korea or like I said send to her agency. I don’t know why you insist on sending to Novogorsk…this is less reliable way IMO.

  6. Richard says:

    Hi, I am going to Europe by plane via Russia. I’m going to transfer at a airport near Novogorsk training center. It takes about 30minutes by car to get there. If I bring a letter and give it to the guard(if there is), will he give the letter to SonYeonjae? You said the post system in Russia is very unreliable so I’d like to go there myself. Will it be possible? I’m not expecting to see her. I just want the guard to deliver it to her.

  7. Richard says:

    Aha. Thank you very much for such a kind answer. I’ll try both! Thanks a lot again ;)

  8. ZKG-Zoe Wan says:

    You live in Korea right? Well Son will return to Korea, she is not in Russia all the year….I can tell you, the post system of Russia is very unreliable. Son has agency, not like other gymnasts, I think there is a someone to take care of fans letter, that’s why I suggest you to contact with her agency.

  9. Richard says:

    But most of the competitions are held abroad.
    And it’s fine. I just want to know if the centre blocks all the letters. I hope they don’t..
    Sorry for asking difficult questions. ;(

  10. ZKG-Zoe Wan says:

    @Richard, sorry I don’t know…why don’t you contact with her agency?…well the safest way is going to the competitions and meet her…

  11. Richard says:

    Hi, I’m a big fan of rhythmic gymnast Son Yeon Jae. I’d like to send a letter to her, but I’m quite worried the centre might not forward my letter to her. Could there be any possible ways to make the letter be safely delivered to her?
