Many Many Thanks Alexandra Grashkina-Hristov for the translation!!!!
“Boryana, now 16, started training at age 6 because she was a very energetic child who “ran around and broke everything.” From a way to spend energy, gymnastics became her lifelong love. What she loves the most about gymnastics is that “it builds character.” Her favorite apparatus is rope, which, unfortunately, is no longer part of the senior program for individuals, but she still likes it. She finds the ribbon the most difficult apparatus. She also has other hobbies like reading and painting. She believes that to succeed in gymnastics you have to be be expressive. “You can’t just perform with an empty look in your eyes and expect the judges to be impressed.” Her first large event was a tournament that accompanied a world cup competition in 2013. She was very excited to perform alongside very famous gymnasts. Unfortunately, she broke her legs and was recovering for 8 months; during that time she kept training with her cast on. “Unlike everyone around me, I took this very calmly and thought that it is temporary; it will just pass.” She says that her biggest challenge is “being stubborn” and “thinking I know more than the coach, which is just not true.”

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

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!

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
