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.

Maria Titova Profile
很久沒寫文章了, 一直以來我多數以提供RG消息為主, 因為自己文筆不好, 這次有個小朋友請我寫一篇關於小tt 的文章 (小tt是我對Titova的暱稱, 現在喜歡叫她臭小t, 也叫她小女兒 XD), 想想就來寫寫看吧, 我自己是覺得很難下筆, 因為當局者迷嘛, 我其實只是個花癡的親媽粉而已, 就像媽媽看自己的小孩, 怎樣都覺得她很好啊, 很難客觀的 (偷笑)
我本來是卡娜耶娃的粉絲, 從08奧運一直關注她直到12奧運衛冕成功後退役, 那年我就有預感她大概倫敦奧運比完後就不會再出來了, 也許是因為這個原因, 所以我特別飛到倫敦去看她比賽. 我向來比較像個人粉而不是項目粉, 我以前一直以為一旦小兔寶退役了 (小兔寶是我對卡娜耶娃的暱稱, 她是我大女兒 :) ), 我大概漸漸的就不會關注RG, 至少不可能再有相同的熱情. 哪知道就在去年年初的一個俄羅斯國內比賽, 我看到了Maria Titova, 當時覺得這個剛上成年組的小女孩好優雅啊, 氣質好好, 那時就留下了很好的印象, 連小兔寶的媽媽都在信中跟我說她好喜歡Titova. 從此我對她留上了心, 隨著比賽的進行, 我越來越來喜歡她, 漸漸地她成為小兔寶退役後我最喜歡的選手, 到後來我已經完全被她俘虜, 變成她的真愛粉, 喜歡的程度跟以前追小兔寶時不相上下.

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.
A news clip released in April, English translated by Alyona!!! Many Many Thanks!!!
at 00:59 Masha says: “I am always warmly welcomed here. I recall times when I used to train here before. It’s always nice to come here but it’s been a long time since I was here last.”
Maria was awarded with the title International Master of Sports at the opening ceremony.
