13-16 in RG

August, 28th 2013 : the only non-russian Gold of the quad (for individuals), earned by Ganna Rizatdinova during hoop EF in front of her home crowd at the Kiev world championships. It was the first time that a non-russian individual won gold at the World Championships since Anna Bessonova, also ukrainian, won the All-Around in Patras in 2007. 

Ganna’s joy and pride were so moving as she emotionally sang her country’s anthem.

13-16 in RG

August 30th 2013: Yana Kudryavtseva from Russia becomes the youngest world all-around champion ever at 15 y/o, Ganna Rizatdinova from Ukraine and Melitina Staniouta from Belarus complete the podium. Showcasing a very delicate gymnastics with a rare virtuosity in her apparatus work, Yana manages to display nerves of steel throughout the entire competition, hitting her ribbon routine in th all-around despite technical problems with the music. The contrast between her delicate frame and her ability to keep a level head in stressful situations eventually lead people to nickname her “the angel with iron wings”.
