Irina Viner-Usmanova, president of Rhythmic Gymnastics Federation in Russia and first coach of Russian National team gave an interview for HELLO! Magazine. In this interview she talked about her gymnasts, her work and her personal life.
“I am used to travel a lot. That’s why I really appreciate my home. The feeling of “this is my bed, this is my pillow, taking a bath”. And also, that I really miss my mom when I am traveling ”
I always say what I think
“Before each competition my gymnasts applied to Kabbalah icons. At the Olympics in London, we also, of course, we did. Each competition day at the Olympics we used to do this.”
“I always say what I think. My gymnasts are all smart and really hardworkers”
“I always had a lot of work – fees, competitions. I am in a good economical position thanks also to my husband.
My gymnasts are smart and hardworkers
I say to my husband “you are a genius, you are great!” I always knew he is a fantastic person”
