At the world Cup, which is being held in Baku, the 24-year-old gymnast Ekaterina Selezneva, speaking for the first time, has already received two gold and one bronze medal.
Ekaterina Selezneva became a real discovery at this championship. She never had to participate in the competition, but a few days before the opening of the Olympics, the girl became part of the Russian national team, replacing four-time world champion Alexander Soldatov.
Head coach of Russia in rhythmic gymnastics commented on her debut: “we Have a new name — Ekaterina Selezneva, the world champion in exercise with a Hoop”.
The conclusion of the world Cup in rhythmic gymnastics will be held September 22, 2019. Thanks Katerina, Russia has earlier won this contest, after all, on account of the country in the medal count: 5 gold, 1 silver and 2 bronze medals. Before the closing of the competition will be even awarded several medals. I hope that they, too, will come to Russia.
On the website of the Kremlin has published a congratulatory telegram personally from Vladimir Putin. He congratulated Dean Averin and Ekaterina Seleznev with a well-deserved gold medals. Before the competition, the President has already met with the girls in person at the opening of the Palace of rhythmic gymnastics in the Luzhniki stadium.
Catherine, of course, pleased with my contribution to the sports life of the country. On his page in Instagram the girl published a video and signed it: “the world Cup 2019. A huge thank you to everyone for your support and faith! Special thanks to Irina Alexandrovna, coaches, doctors and our team!”
