Injury was a main concern for the Russian women at this competition.  Of the Olympians, only Gerasimova competed at full strength.  Both Listunova and Melnikova were suffering with pain; you could see this on their faces and in their movement, by the end of the day's competition.  For Listunova, foot and back pain were problems, while Melnikova had severe achilles pain.  Melnikova is booked in for an MRI as soon as she returns to Moscow after a short break in Sochi, where she is staying with David Belyavski and his family.   Slava Urazova didn't make the competi ..read more

I have to think very carefully about what I give exposure to on RRG, either here in the main blog, or over on X and Facebook.  I am particularly thoughtful when it comes to sharing anything that shows individual gymnasts as choosing to support the War, as that could be damaging well beyond the extent of this horrible conflict, and who knows what goes on?   Furthermore, I do not want to promote material that could inadvertently give weight to the cause of war.  All war is wrong.  The arms industry and politicians are the only winners.  The rest of us lose - we ..read more

WAG injury list Angelina Melnikova is experiencing low energy, blaming poor nutrition; there is very little protein available at the National Training centre, she says.  Boiled vegetables are the main offering.  She has Achilles pain and is finding it difficult to make her landings and to get through four routines.   ..read more

 Ukrainian cultural identity in gymnastics It’s difficult to write about Russian gymnastics at present; I have to keep it contextless.  And yet the news colludes against me.  Yesterday, former Russian President Dmitri Medvedev made a horrible statement declaring that Russia should subsume the whole of Ukrainian identity; Ukraine should disappear and become part of Russia not just geographically and economically, but also culturally.   Let me say that again: Medvedev said that Ukraine’s identity should disappear.   To say that your country’s aim i ..read more

Olympic champion in artistic gymnastics Victoria Listunova, who is not training at full strength due to back pain, will perform at the Russian Championships in Sochi in March. “Listunova is experiencing muscle pain in the lumbar region of the spine, but there is no injury,” Rodionenko said. “We have reduced her loads and are trying to understand the reasons for the problems that have arisen, but the doctor says that it is ‘sore throat’ [translation difficulty] (delayed onset muscle pain syndrome - TASS note). Health "Athletes are the most important thing now, and as soon as they feel unwell ..read more
