Legendary Bulgarian gymnast, Silviya Miteva announces her retirement at the age of 27 years old.
Berlin Grand Prix was her last official competition, where she got gold in ribbon routine and bronze medal in All-around. After her amazing performance, she suddenly started crying and kissed her apparatus.
Silviya is coached by her mother, Silviya Divcheva-Miteva, European and World Champion in Rhythmic Gymnastics.
She became an international gymnast in 2003 (Budapest World Championships 2003), but her best results are from 2009 to 2013. Silviya is the oldest gymnast in the History of Rhythmic gymnastics that won a medal at European Championships (27 years old) and at World Championships (25 years old)
Miteva is one of the most popular gymnasts for the audience. Her routines are a mix of expression and elegance.
Silviya’s turns are one of the most technical ones

Rhythmic Gymnastics is more than a sport. Is an art that combines technical movements with expression and handling of an apparatus. This new code includes dancing steps and artistic more than the previous codes.
Anna Bessonova was one of the most emotional gymnast and so that one of the most popular for the audience. She could perform both an elegant routine (Swan Lake) or a modern one (The Matrix).
Sometimes you can’t stop your feelings:

Team Ukraine became World Champion in 5 Ribbons (World Championships New Orleans 2002)
And sometimes you just are not at your best:
Natalia Godunko got injured but she decided anyways to compete (Patras 2007)
Moments before going onto the carpet, concentration is the key:
