I. Viner interview “The dying swan” Soldatova is not yet ready. Bet on the Averinas

Article link: click here
Translation by Google

At the last stage of the World Challenge Cup in Kazan, the Russian team won all the gold medals, and the sisters of Averina have already won the first double for the first time. With what our team in rhythmic gymnastics will go to the world championship in Italy, which will be held in Pesaro in two weeks, the head coach of the Russian national team Irina Viner-Usmanova told ” Match TV ” Evgeny Evnevich.

– Are you pleased with the performance of the girls at this stage of the World Cup?

– For this performance, an expensive price has been paid. The huge work was additionally complicated by a change in the rules of refereeing, which occurred after the Olympics. Now the judges do not have cards to check on them during the performance of the gymnast, and, unfortunately, few judges at the moment can work well under the new rules. In the individual program of the Averinas, as well as with the Russian team in group exercises, all elements go one by one, without any pauses. This is very difficult to achieve in the preparation of the program, and then it is also difficult to get an appropriate assessment for it.  Continue reading

Please read the World Cup Series 2017-2020 rules here,

During the Olympic cycle 2017 – 2020, there will be one Rhythmic Gymnastics World Cup Series every year, with four events each, taking place between February and April. The results of the 3 best results out of 4 are taken into consideration. The World Cup Series 2020 will be qualifying for the 2020 Olympic Games (for Individual gymnasts only).

In the 2020 Rhythmic Gymnastics World Cup Series a separate Olympic Qualification Ranking list will be established and give the opportunity to earn three Olympic qualification places. Continue reading

Coach Vera Shtelbaums raised up champions to whom young gymnasts from Omsk want to be equal

Original article link: click here
English translated by Alyona and catts! Billion Billion Thanks!!!!!!

Victories of our rhythmic gymnasts on various championships attract big number of children to sports. The names of the gymnasts raised up by Vera Shtelbaums are known not only by the followers of the rhythmic gymnastics but also by the people who are not interested in this sport. Nowadays Vera Shtelbaums has been coaching a new candidate for high achievements – Maria Titova. Although Masha is not from Omsk, she is quite capable of continuing the triumph of Russian gymnasts on the world arena.

Evgenia Kanaeva-interview with
Posted at on 07/03/2013
Author (in Russian): Anatoly Samokhvalov & Andrei Simonenko

English edition was translated and edited by catts and Alyona, MANY MANY THANKSSSS!!!!

Gymnast Kanaeva, winner of ‘the most success athletes in 2012’ ranking organized by the agency “R-Sport”, refused to define the best one. She wished the impossible – grant every competitor the first place. In an interview with “R-Sport”’s Anatoly Samokhvalova and Andrei Symonenko, the double Olympic champion talked about the fan from Taiwan (Note by Zoe: means me hahaha 😀 ❤), a sincere smile and eating chocolate  behind the coach’s back… Continue reading

I have no words!!! about two months ago, I asked Zhenya’s mom Svetlana: May I do an e-mail interview with Zhenya? I am not belong to any media, so I only have little confidence that they will say yes. But Svetlana accepted my request without any hesitate!  So I with my friends: Alyona, catts, Ekaterina and Fanny worked together to discuss the questions. Special thanks to Fanny, she wrote most of the questions. There were many things in these two months and Zhenya has been very busy, but finally She answered our questions and sent it to me last night via Svetlana’s help. Big Big Thanks Zhenya and Svetlana!!! I love both of them ♥ ♥ ♥ And also thanks my friends: Alyona, catts, Ekaterina, and Fanny for working with me to do this project. We DID IT!!!!!!!!! This interview is well deserved to read! Zhenya has never such opened in an interview before…

There is no better one-Zoe at London 2012-English version

(It’s just a surprised!!! I saw myself hugging and kissing Zhenya at the end of this video!!! outside Wembley Arena-12th-Aug-2012, 0:34-0:42 can see me and Svetlana and in the end XD. Big Thanks the recorder!!! Now with this video, this trip is even more perfect for me!!! 😀 )

written by Zoe Wan based on my Chinese version:
There is no better one-Zoe @London 2012
sorry for my poor English.


Since the great experience in WCH Montpellier last year (impression please check here: Not Perfect but Happy Ending (the magic week in Montpellier )-English Version) I had been thinking to watch Olympics London. I really hope that I can witness Zhenya to make history, becoming the first gymnast to win two Olympic gold medals in individual all around in RG. And RG fans all know she has great chance to achieve it. Moreover, I have been thinking if I don’t go this time, then it’s difficult for me to see her performing live in the future. Because I can’t make decision, I missed the chance to buy OG tickets by legal way. The on-line ticket system is only for the residents of UK and some designated European countries. People who live in other places have to buy ticket from official agents. In Taiwan, I only can buy tickets in Winner express co., when I called them to ask for tickets, the tickets had sold out. But I didn’t give up, I tried to find tickets on eBay, and finally I got one AA final ticket. I want to see qualification too, but not many time left for me, I thought I can buy the qualification tickets when I am in London. Although there were no tickets left in normal ways, I believed I can get the tickets definitely! Continue reading
