Famous gymnast Melitina Staniouta decided to complete her career. She will take place at the international tournament Baby Cup in Minsk as her farewell performance.
-What would be your final chord? Surprise with something new?
— Let it remain secret. Do not want to reveal the card, but spectators are in for a surprise. I hope everyone will enjoy the Gala concert, where will be presented to my room.
— Long prepared for this?
— If this is my final output on the carpet, then you can say that this program has worked all my life. I want to leave nicely. Perhaps, every athlete strives to do so. I’d love to finish my sports path where it starts. I hope that after my departure will open new bright names. Confident that the upcoming Baby Sur you will see them.
— The Earlier you said that you intend to compete throughout the year 2017 …
– In fact, in the last couple of months I knew that the last season is likely to be my final. Yet a decision about retirement is impossible to come overnight. It matured in my mind a very long time, there were some doubts. However, I believe that it is better to leave now.
– The decision was hard?
– I am well aware that once this happens. Of course, difficult step. Yet twenty years, I gave myself to the favorite business, and complexity or injuries could not stop me. Sport – is a big job, with its ups and downs. But be that as it may, all good things must come to an end. And the moment comes much earlier in rhythmic gymnastics. I’m a little bitter about it to say, the soul still hurts.
– About anything you regret?
– In principle, no. When played in junior age, certain experiences, of course, they were. But over time, you get more experience and you look at the failure of understanding.
Probably, I regret that sometimes do not listen to the coach, he acted independently. After all, a significant segment of the career falls just on the awkward age. Perhaps somewhere I wanted more. But in global terms about anything not regret. For this I want to say a huge thanks to all the coaching staff, who had worked with me for many years. Largely due to their decisions I managed to reach certain heights. They have always guided me in the right direction.
