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

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.

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

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.

Intro

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

Alina Harnasko: “I was plump and did not give hope”

Translation by google

04-July-2017
For the rhythmic gymnastics of the hearts of Belarusian fans are always calm. For the second decade a new talent has replaced one another, no less promising and successful. Our girls very rarely return from international tournaments without rewards, and behind their big names, as a rule, there is a strong Belarusian school and mother of all our artists – Irina Leparskaya.

After the Olympic Games in 2016, the then first number of the national team Melitina Staniouta announced her retirement. “I did everything I could, I can not,” the girl said in her interview after Rio. The team still had a young gymnast, who, nevertheless, already gained experience – Katsiaryna Halkina. It was on her laid further hopes. But Katya began to worry about injuries, which somehow forced to perform not in full force, but somewhere and completely skip the tournaments. At that time, even more young Belarusian grace, Alina Harnasko, said her word. Someone can remember this girl yet at the European Championships in Minsk or junior starts, where the pupil of the Olympic champion Marina Lobach has repeatedly climbed to the podium. And this May, already at the senior championship of the continent, unexpectedly for many, and above all for herself, Alina won a bronze medal in the ball exercise, and then repeated her successes at the World Cup stages. As it was and where it all began, the gymnast told in an interview with the newspaper Zvyazda.

“I am reviewing the first speeches and I think, how could anything come of me …?”  Continue reading
