Ekaterina Selezneva for Vogue Russia


Ekaterina Selezneva: “Turning moment”

Ekaterina Selezneva was born 21 years ago in Russia. She is international Master of Sports and a member of National Russian Team.

“I have been doing gymnastics since I was 5 years old. My mum is an honored rhythmic gymnastics coach, but she wasn’t too much about of me becoming a professional gymnast. I don’t remember my first training. But I was surrounded by girls that were older than me. I was even scared of them!”


Darya Klesheva and Ekaterina Selezneva


“Right now I am on my third year of University and soon I will graduate in Physical Education. It is really difficult to study and be a sportswoman at the same time. For example this year, Russian National Championships was one of the most difficult competitions of my life. We have a really tough gymnastics school, one of the best of the whole world. The level in this championship is quite high. Fortunatly I performed clean routines that’s why I could join National Team”
