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.

Just translated a short part of this article, big thanks my friend Tatiana!!!
Yana Batyrshina said: “It is not a secret for anyone that Masha Titova is Irina Viner’s favourite. Our head coach predicts her Olympic gold, naming her the face of RG because she is much alike with Maya Plisetskaya.” (Legend Russian ballerina!)
Ни для кого не секрет, что любимица Ирины Винер — Маша Титова. Главный наставник нашей команды прочит ей олимпийское золото, называя эту девочку лицом художественной гимнастики, потому что по фактуре она очень похожа на Майю Плисецкую.
OMG!!!!!!!!!! Irina Viner really has VERY high expectation on Masha!!! I just hope she can improve step by step. Because no matter what, hard working is the most important. May God Bless Masha!!!

And moreover, we have Maria Titova who showed wonderful performances in World Cups. She could participate in the European Championship as well but Continue reading
