04-July-2017
For the rhythmic gymnastics of the hearts of Belarusian fans are always calm. For the second decade a new talent has replaced one another, no less promising and successful. Our girls very rarely return from international tournaments without rewards, and behind their big names, as a rule, there is a strong Belarusian school and mother of all our artists – Irina Leparskaya.

After the Olympic Games in 2016, the then first number of the national team Melitina Staniouta announced her retirement. “I did everything I could, I can not,” the girl said in her interview after Rio. The team still had a young gymnast, who, nevertheless, already gained experience – Katsiaryna Halkina. It was on her laid further hopes. But Katya began to worry about injuries, which somehow forced to perform not in full force, but somewhere and completely skip the tournaments. At that time, even more young Belarusian grace, Alina Harnasko, said her word. Someone can remember this girl yet at the European Championships in Minsk or junior starts, where the pupil of the Olympic champion Marina Lobach has repeatedly climbed to the podium. And this May, already at the senior championship of the continent, unexpectedly for many, and above all for herself, Alina won a bronze medal in the ball exercise, and then repeated her successes at the World Cup stages. As it was and where it all began, the gymnast told in an interview with the newspaper Zvyazda.

“I am reviewing the first speeches and I think, how could anything come of me …?”  Continue reading

10-Jun-2017
Translated by my friend Alyona, Many Thanks!!! 💕

Evgeniya is a two-times Olympic Champion in All Around. There are no other rhythmic gymnasts of this kind. And probably they will never appear again. At least in the nearest future. Kanaeva arrived to Krasnodar as a coach. However, she doesn’t reveal the names of the gymnasts she trains – well, she knows better. Nevertheless she answered the questions of our correspondent with great pleasure.

– Do you like the hall where the competitions of the rhythmic gymnastics are held?
– Yes, it’s not bad. And the girls like it as well. Continue reading
