03 December 2011 at the palasport “Le Caselle” the best schools of Italy, with some of the top gymnasts (Daria Kondakova, Daria Dmitrieva, Alina Maksymenko, Aliya Garaeva and others). It was a great show the gymnasts were fighting for the italian tittle.
I took the full coverage both from A1 and A2 even If the only video I missed is Charkashyna’s amazing clubs routine which took the highest score of the day 28,400. Soon I’ll publish the videos. Here some impressions: Dmitrieva ribbon was full of expression but not perfect (27,600); Garaeva with ribbon was very good too she was so charming and confident and she had very good jumps (27,650); Kondakova wasn’t too clean she lost balance three times but she didn’t big mistakes (28,300); Maksymenko had a mistake with rope but she was very expressive and beautiful (28,075).
The competition ended with four galas: Julieta Cantaluppi, Melitina Staniouta on Amelie’s music, Alina Maksymenko’s free hands and Daria Kondakova on russian music. They were very beautiful and I was so surprised and amazed by this galas.
After the awarding ceremonies I have another big surprise I took the two autographs of Alina Maksymenko and Liubov Charkashyna they were very nice with me and I was enchanted by their kindness. It’s incredible how two of the best gymnasts in the world are so modest and kind! Thank you girls; an athlete is a champion also for its character!
