    Alright cool, will check out the group video.

    Alright, I followed the tumblr page, so I will delete it now and check the site you just sent me.

    @Monique, for me RUS junior group 5 hoops is difficult but nothing special, Bulgaria is just PERFECT, the choreography and the music!!! I posted the video link yesterday their performance in final in Pesaro 2013 (they won gold in final), check my newest comment for WC Pesaro 2013 😉 and except BUL junior, AZE, and ISR 5 hoops are very good too!!!

    And I removed Masha’s website to wordpress, will update her information there from now on, go to check it 🙂 (I don’t like tumblr…)

  4. M says:

    Ah yeah I’ve heard about Well the next time you talk to her, tell her she has another big fan in me 🙂 My name is Monique.

    I will have to check out Bulgaria’s junior group. I’ve seen the Russian one but haven’t really looked at the other groups. However, I will sometime soon.

  5. ZKG-Zoe Wan says:

    @M, No! Srashivai is a “ask me questions site” right? I don’t use that. and I don’t know whether Masha has an account in Srashivai or not…I communicate with her via by PM. (it’s like RUS facebook, she doesn’t have facebook account) actually very often recently, almost one PM per day but well nothing special haha… 😉

    I seldom watch groups before, but this year I just love Bulgaria junior group 5 hoops sooo much, best routine for me, I can watch it thousand times and never get bored 🙂

  6. M says:

    I know you meant, you love her more, and not that she is technically better lol. I agree about Maria’s apparatus handling skills are weak, she is young so I believe she will get more secure in time.

    It is understanable in you liking the younger gymnasts than the older one. As I’ve said, I have started to pay more attention to RG since the Olympics really. I don’t watch the singles as much as I do the group routines. I respect them all because this takes a lot of dedication to do.

    It’s great you get to talk to her. Do you do it on the Srashivai site?

  7. ZKG-Zoe Wan says:

    @M, “Masha > Zhenya” means I have more love in Masha now, not means technique she is better than Zhenya of course haha. Zhenya is a legend, it’s very very difficult that other gymnasts can surpass her! Masha has many shortcoming needing to improve. Her apparatus handling skill is weak, ball and ribbon especially, and she always has problems with the ring pivots…but what I love her are her appearance, her body proportion and her balletic+graceful style. She is, IMO the most beautiful to watch in RUS team, now and the past.

    RG is a beautiful sport, I have to confess I love watching beautiful gymnasts. Before I always thought I would not pay the same passion to other gymnasts like I did for Zhenya after she retiring, then suddenly Masha appeared…I have a feeling if she appeared in the same time with Zhenya, maybe my favorite will go to Masha not Zhenya, and this blog will be “Masha Titova Gymnasium” XD…Maybe also because of her age, I followed Zhenya since OG Beijing, she was 18 at that time, Masha is only 15 (she will be 16 in August) for me I always like young gymnasts more than matured ones 😉 Zhenya and Masha both appeared in the front of my eyes when they were/are teenager. I communicate with Masha sometimes in internet, I admire her personality very MUCH! Her English is not bad, I think good enough for a 15 years old girl.

    About Russian gymnasts’ scores, yes they are overscored often, so some RG fans don’t like them…Masha was overscored too in Bucharest and Pesaro…but anyway I still love her.

  8. M says:

    Oh Wow. Masha >Zhenya for you? that is high praise indeed. It is only really recently that I’ve paid more attention to Rhythmic Gymnastics, I knew of Kanaeva etc but AG is my thing. I like the Russian Senior team especially Blizyuk and Nazarenko. For some reason after seeing her for the first time, I was drawn to Maria and took an instant liking to her. So now I start paying more attention to RG.

    I read a lot that some say that Russia tends to get overscored and for that reason, some people don’t like them.

  9. ZKG-Zoe Wan says:

    Yana K and Mamun both were overscore in EF…= =+ with a drop and other little mistakes they still took golds in hoop and ball and both got 18+ high scores…

    @M, I won’t like other Russian gymnasts except Masha I mean in the senior team…the others all are not my cup of tea, and I love Masha sooo much! but some little girls I love, for example the OMSK 12 years old girl Anastasia Shibaeva 🙂

    But I like some other countries’ gymnasts such as Marina Durunda, Melitina Staniouta, Arina Charopa, Alina Maksymenko, some Lala Yusifova’s routines etc..still Masha is the number one in my mind. Masha is sooo unique in RUS team, no one like her, and she is a very nice girl too, I not only love her gymnadtics but also her personality, she is very friendly, humble, gentle, polite, sweeet and lovely. I can say right now Masha > Zhenya for me.

    BTW, you can compare Anna Trubnikova and Yana K, you will see the big difference in their body elements, Anna is way much difficult in D1. Even the little OMSK girl Anastasia, I think her leaps and pivots are better than Yana K. Yana K routines, except those amazing apparatus skill, actully are sloppy…she is like walking in her routines most of time…

  10. M says:

    Ah I see regarding Yana. She is still young, so hopefully her routines will be more senior level. I never really paid attention to the body elements, I guess I will have to start.

    Ah you only like Maria so far this year? Who knows maybe the others will grown on you

  12. ZKG-Zoe Wan says:

    @M, actually, in RUS team I only like Masha right now…she is my favorite, others I don’t like…As for Yana K’s scores, I didn’t need to watch videos, with her body difficulty, so simple it’s no way she can get 18.600 such high scores! Her body elements are poor comparing with those top gymnasts, she is under average in D1…her routines are junior level/style except ball. I agree her apparatus handling skill is incredible, but her body skill is not, even she got the maximum in D2, 18.600 is still too much.

    BTW, only Staniouta deserves 18+ IMO, she is the BEST this year.

  13. M says:

    Ah, I never saw the event so I can’t say about the over-scoring. I will hopefully see some on youtube.

    I take it, you are not a big fan of hers?

  14. ZKG-Zoe Wan says:

    @M, for me Yana K is sooooo overscored!

  15. M says:

    Wow, congrats to Yana, she is definitely someone to look out for.
