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:

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.
