Coach Vera Shtelbaums raised up champions to whom young gymnasts from Omsk want to be equal

Original article link: click here
English translated by Alyona and catts! Billion Billion Thanks!!!!!!

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.

Maria Titova the Swan – portrait of Masha Titova, written by Zoe Wan

written by Zoe Wan, sorry for my poor English…
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.

Translation: Masha Q and A (information from vk)

Maria Titova the Swan-Wall-Gala
Information from Masha’s fans page in vk, check here .
English translated by my friend Alyona, many thanks!!!

Q: There was information in Mass Media that Irina Viner included Masha to preliminary team to prepare for the Olympics in Rio.
Masha: Are you serious? I hear it for the first time. I have no time to follow Mass Media. I need to ask Irina Alexandrovna about it. In any case there is long way to the Olympics and to get there one needs to work really hard. (note by Zoe Wan: about this question, I think the report of mass media was long time ago, it was in 2013. Now the situation is different…) 

Q: Two years ago Masha was about 38 kgs and her coach made her keep a diet. Is she still starving?
Masha: Chocolate and buns are prohibited. Continue reading
