For me，Zhenya’s “Routine of the Year 2009” definitely is Zhenya’s ball rouitne @AA Final of WC Mie 2009!
Also the most classic、beautiful and touched moment of Zhenya in her career life till now!
Yes, She made mistakes at this routine，but at the same time I just felt very moved by her performance and got great pain when I saw her crying at Kiss & Cry，but also I am very happy for Zhenya!
Every time I watch this routine, I feel like crying again… I have tears in my eyes now when I am writing this article. Today I asked Alyona to translate the conversation of Zhenya and those Russian coaches at Kiss & Cry。When I read Alyona’s translation I didn’t need to watch the video again. I could feel the emotions, it filled my heart with pain and I felt like crying for Zhenya again….
Last year I was also so moved when I saw Zhenya’s tears at OG Beijing，but the moment at Mie，her ball routine at AA Final was totally overwhelming，I can’t imagine how big the responsibility on Zhenya’s shoulders is but the tension of the competition is a huge test to physical strength.
Zhenya got through，She survived! She is really a strong gymnast, great athlete and true champion!!!
following is Alyona’s translation for the moment at Kiss & Cry，many thanks to HER! and enjoy your read:
Viner (while Zhenya coming to K&C corner): Zhenya smile! Please’ smile! You are an actress, Zhenya. You are an actress. Zhenechka, please smile! Zhenya don’t cry, please don’t do it!
Zhenya (sitting): What kind of… (Viner interrupts her).
Viner: First place, Zhenya!
Women: First! We are first! That’s it! That’s why she was crying – from happiness.
Viner (after kissing Zhenya): She is still crying! No one knows what you have missed.
Woman in red t-shirt (kissing Zhenya): Everything is ok, God will help you.
Viner (standing up): Yes, everything is all right.
Woman in red: Sweetheart, thanks God, it has finished!
Voice from behind: What have you lost, Irina Alexandrovna? (meaning Viner)
Viner: My sunglasses.
Blond woman in red (hugging Zhenya): Zhenya, well done! Thank you, my sweetheart!
Shtelbaums: It’s all right. It’s all right. Be strong!
Zhenya (sobbing): I am tired…
Shtelbaums: She is tired (to other women).
Woman behind Shtelbaums: Honey, what’s wrong? Look they show us (Zhenya smiles and turns to camera).
Woman: Yes, she is tired, everyone is tired.
Viner: Of course, they have finished such a marathon race (everyone is laughing)
Viner: Zhenya, come on, wave your hand! Wave your hand more!
Women: Wave your hand!
Voice from behind: Everyone is tired. Life is like this!
我自己選的Zhenya的Routine of the Year 2009! 對我而言肯定是WC Mie 2009 AA Final的Ball routine!
mm….let me think about it。。。。。。。。。。。。
Kiss and Cry 的對話很簡單，我想我不需要再寫中譯了，Alyona的翻譯很完美! 寫中譯我可能情緒又會很激動。
有意思的是…Zhenya說: What kind of…然後被打斷了。幾個小時前我跟Alyona討論這件事，Zhenya是想說什麼呢? Alyona給我一個很完美的答案。anyway，答案在Zhenya心中。
