On March 2, 2010 internet site http://sib21vek.ru/ will start voting for the title “The Siberian of the Year”. There are 28 candidates chosen by the Experts’ Committee and only seven of them are going to get a very honorable title of “The Siberian of the Year”.
The main goal of this project is to present these wonderful and respectable people to the general public. This project is non-commercial and based upon free-will of Experts’ Committee and organizers.
Evgenia Kanaeva was one of the winners of this project in 2008 (note by Zoe Wan: Zhenya was 1st in the vote of 2008) as a person who won gold medal at the Olympic Games. This year she is nominated again as a gymnast who won 6 medals at the World Championship in Mie thus making an “eternal” record which can be repeated but not surpassed.
The voting will go on within March 2 – March 11. Everyone can vote for seven different people once a day.
Note by Zoe Wan: Irina Tchachina also won “The Siberian of the Year” before, she was the winner of 2005.
and here’s a relative news report for “Siberian 2009“
Zhenya was the winner of 2008
從3月2日開始又將舉辦“The Siberian of the Year“的票選活動，今年是第七次舉辦了。這次共有28個候選人入圍，要從中選出七位得獎者。
Evgenia Kanaeva是2008年的得獎者之一，她是因為2008年奧運冠軍而得獎。去年的票選-“Siberian 2008”，Zhenya是得票數最高的。今年她又再度入圍了。因為她去年在日本Mie世錦賽的傑出表現-6面金牌，這是個永恆的紀錄，因為以後只可能有人創造相同的紀錄但不可能超過她。
備註: Irina Tchachina也曾贏得2005年的“The Siberian of the Year“。
