News from RUS RG federation
OK I only posted the part about EC…
translated by google
Head coach of Russia, President of the Russian Federation of Rhythmic Gymnastics Irina Viner, Usmanova has confirmed participation in the European Championship Evgenia Kanaeva and Alexandra Merkulova. The issue of participation in the Olympics, she said, remains open and will be resolved only after the June Grand Prix in Austria and the World Cup in Belarus in July.
Zhenya please MUST take good care of yourself!!!!!! Hold on and just do your BEST!!! I will pray for you every day.!!!!!!!!!
@Mariana Antunes, I am very sorry, I don’t know…
is BNT World going to show the European Championships on TV?
I just saw the news and that you put up and I think zhenya is competing
edited, Zhenya just replied my PM, she said she will fly to Novgorod tomorrow, I hope this means she will compete in EC….Best Wishes for Zhenya!
@Laura, all these newest news say Zhenya and Dudkina will compete in EC, I hope I can believe these news…orz http://sport.mail.ru/news/qymnastics/9088314/ http://omskzdes.ru/news/detail.php?ELEMENT_ID=10879 http://tvoiomsk.ru/item.asp?id=4593
@Laura, I don’t know…this information is very weird. I am waiting for more reliable confirmation. I hope Svetlana will answer me.
“Apparently Kanaeva is ill and may not go to EC; it might be Sasha and Rita going”
IS THAT TRUE??????????????!!!!!!
@Ksenia, Thank you very much for correcting me. I edited the article.
emm -) sorry.. but Irina Viner-Usmanova, not Viner, Usmanov. She took her husband family name ‘Usmanov’ and became ‘Viner-Usmanova’. only for information. Thanks for your beautiful blog!
I hope that Zhenya will be much more prudent not to allow others to put pressure on the moral of the psyche. first of all wish her not to overwork, to preserve physical and mental health and strength for the Olympics. Let She is always be remembered, she is on the carpet is the creator of art. With attention, without the stress and the most important, how she is able with love
Orz….. I’m afraid of what might happen. Lets pray…
WC Tashkent 2012 live stream
sorry I edited your message, I hope not to discuss some private information here. and that’s why I never upload Zhenya’s private photos here or on FB fans page.
well if daria and daria are injured i understand.
Off-topic, the updated participants list of WC Tashkent 2012-this weekend
but it’s not 100% correct, Zhenya won’t go there
(Because Zhenya didn’t participate this competition, I won’t write an article for this event sorry…)
@StretchyLily, yes only two spots max. Because this year, only AA final for senior individual no EF in European Championship. Both Darias are injured at this moment, Kondakova’s left knee and Dmitrieva’s feet. Hope them recover soon.
About OG spots in RUS team, till the last minute, I won’t say who is 100% going. who knows. Anyway, I just wish ALL THE BEST for Zhenya!!!!!
They can only send two? What about sending Kondakova? I like Dmitrieva also even though she needs to establish reliability..
I do hope Kanaeva returns to top form, if not surpasses it! First, because I would love to see her win the OG this year, and second, because I am going to be there to see it..(and I’d be very disappointed otherwise).
I think Merkulova is way out of her league; perhaps they are pushing her now into everything in case she fails to live up to some people’s high expectations after London.. I haven’t seen anything extraordinary from her performances that justifies the favour she is getting. Compared to many others, her performances seem unremarkable. She could be or could have been better, but either she has not peaked yet, or she’s not going to get any better than this. Who knows..
oh god!i was shocked that theres any kondakova and dmitrieva!well i wish best for zhenya
