    On 1 September, Zhenya held a master class in one of the Moscow schools and told the students about the Olympic diet.
    Brief translation (Big Thanks my friend catts!!!)
    “Zhenya said she was also once a small child, Alina Kabaeva and Irina Tchachina, together with other athletes, were her samples. Then, she said the past 2 years were hard as she needed to watch her weight and could not afford to eat too much and anything sweet. She said in the morning she could only have green tea.”

    and according to this article: http://www.omskinform.ru/main.php?id=1&nid=55769
    After Moscow, she will need to rush back to Omsk for other appointments, including a OG press conference together with Shtelbaums and Arais on 3 September.
