Victories of our rhythmic gymnasts on various championships attract big number of children to sports. The names of the gymnasts raised up by Vera Shtelbaums are known not only by the followers of the rhythmic gymnastics but also by the people who are not interested in this sport. Nowadays Vera Shtelbaums has been coaching a new candidate for high achievements – Maria Titova. Although Masha is not from Omsk, she is quite capable of continuing the triumph of Russian gymnasts on the world arena.
Vera Shtelbaums is the Honored Coach of Russia, Continue reading

Maria Titova Profile
This is an impression from a huge fan’s view, not objectively at all !!!
I haven’t written articles for a long long time, mostly I am focus on providing RG information in my website. One reason is because I am not good in writing, and my English is poor. Few days ago, a Chinese girl invited me to write an article about “小tt” for their platform in WeChat. (“小tt” is the nickname I call Masha, now I like to call her “臭小t” and I also love to call her my little daughter XDD) It’s a chance to introduce Masha to Chinese RG fans so I accepted their invitation. It’s difficult for me to write about Masha, because I am a big fan of her, I can’t write her objectively. I treat her as my little daughter (Zhenya is my elder daughter XD), in a mother’s eyes, her child is always good no matter what (laughing).
I am a big fan of Zhenya Kanaeva, I followed her since 2008 Beijing OG. In 2012, I had a premonition; Zhenya would retire after London OG. That’s why I tried my best to fly to London to watch her competing. Honestly I am more like a fan for gymnasts than a fan for this sport. Before I always thought I would less concern RG gradually, at least I won’t have the same passion to follow RG once Zhenya retires. But last year, in a Russian RG competition, I saw Maria Titova, I found her graceful and elegant. She gave me a good impression since then. Time after time, I like her more and more, she becomes my favorite gymnast after the retirement of Zhenya.

Russland.RU, a German language online-news about Russia, held an online poll, voted the top 5 best Russian sportswomen. Here’s the results: I am VERY surprised that Masha is 3rd!!! Congrats to Masha!!!
1. Yana Kudryavtseva (RG)
2. Yulia Lipnitskaya (FS)
3. Maria Titova (RG)
Russland.RU, a german online-news about Russia, is voting 5 best russian sportswomen, Masha is nominated! Yana Kudryavtseva and Margarita Mamun are nominated too, the list including AG, RG, FS, tennis, volleyball, weightlifting, boxing, basketball etc…Masha can’t compare with other candidates IMO, but if it’s voting for the most elegant sportswoman, I think she is well deserved to win the title hehe
Here’s the link of the poll:

English translated by Alyona, Many Many Thanks!!! (only translated one part of the interview)
Yes, for today Mamun and Kudryavtseva are the main candidates for the Olypmics. God, let them stay healthy! But everything will depend on their further results and who takes the lead. For example, during preparation for the current World Championships Maria Titova lost her place in the team to Alexandra Soldatova, who as a result became a World Champion in the team. So maybe this girl will take the lead in the future or Titova will probably improve her shape. We have many talented girls. So far the leaders are clear, but what happens later we will see. Everyone in the team should strive for her place, the name absolutely does not matter, – says Irina Viner-Usmanova.
