Wednesday zoom: Anna Rizatdinova and her “New balance”

After the World title (Kiev 2013 with hoop) and the Olympic bronze (Rio 2016), Anna Rizatdinova can add another achievement to her extraordinary career:  the launch of her body workout.

It was just 5 years ago that Anna Rizatdinova, a young and promising gymnast from Deriugina’s school, conquered the audience during London 2012, performing her ball on “The Secret Garden” soundtrack. Then a new code  of points, the World Championship in Kiev, and many other podiums at all the major events. Now, after two Olympic Games, Anya is an affirmed rhythmic gymnast, who recently won the “Ukraine’s Woman Hero of the Year”.

Despite all her achievements Rizatdinova decided after Rio 2016, to stay at least for another year. Her first appearance on the international carpet was fixed during Deriugina’s Grand Prix (17-19 March). After her deserved period of pause, Anya managed to prepare her new program in just three weeks before the Deriugina’s Grand Prix. Unfortunately during the competition she suffered from an hold injury to her foot and she resigned after the hoop routine.

While the fans are wondering If she will be able to return before Pesaro’s World Championships, Anya has launched her website and Facebook page about her new “Dream Body Workout”. And she’s now completely dedicate to promote it. Let’s hope that she will find the time and motivation to come back to Rhythmic Gymnastics. In any case, good luck with your project Anya!
