30 days of RG challenge:
Day 21: The most beautiful gymnast
Anna Bessonova! She always looks natural and beautiful both on the carpet and in real life and doesn’t use too much make-up, which is common in RG.
It was hard to choose between her and Liubov Charkashyna… =)
Day 19: Favourite gala
Ukraine is definetely the best in creating and performing galas! It’s hard to choose only one. So, I’ll post several ones.
1. We don’t have it on YouTube. It was performed by Ukraine at the beginning of 2000s. Very beautiful. More elegant than modern ones, but less dynamic and powerful than nowadays.
2. Angels & Demons: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LygEgqbzfA (No need to comment. Every RG fan has seen it!)
3. Infinity: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jb9fZ_yPUIs&list=FLfAUvTSkS8n7BDJ4tFe5h7g&index=110&feature=plpp_video (it’s better than TV coverage, but still at the stadium it was like a FIREWORK!)
4. Tamara Yerofeeva, 1999-2000: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2DsYSfs2Zc&list=FLfAUvTSkS8n7BDJ4tFe5h7g&index=525&feature=plpp_video Mezmerizing!
5. Moulin Rouge (can’t find the video now) But ONLY with TAMARA! Bad idea to replace her!
And again 2 days for one, as I didn’t post anything yesterday =)
Day 14: Favourite ribbon routine
Anna Bessonova, 2008: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9Dd1bmOBTA
Maybe not even the routine itself but the way Anna performed it THAT day. It was very emotional and the mood was great. It seemed like “F*** all of you!”))
Day 9: The greatest gymnast of all time
Honestly? Anna Bessonova. It’s a fact for not blind people. Don’t argue with me. Hate me silently =) I will never change my mind (only if someone better appears, of course)
