Last week, RUS team did photo session, saw some photos from the photographer’s or gymnasts’ instagram…this one was posted by Dmitry Kornev. Masha was making up. Seems it’s balletic style, I think among the active gymnasts, Masha is the one suiting the balletic style most. Looking forward to the photos coming out 🙂
