Alexander Alexandrov Meets His New Team

Today, the Brazilian Gymnastics posted photos of the first official Brazilian national team training camp  with new head coach, Alexander Alexandrov on their Facebook page.

The gymnasts convened this week for the first week long training camp that is being held July 15, Monday through this Friday, July 20. From what I gather from the translation that Bing translate told me, this training camp is supposed to be targeting potential athletes for the Rio 2016 team.  The present gymnasts included Daniele Hypolito,  Adrian Garcia, Flávia Saraiva, Isabelle Cruz, Leticia da Costa, Maria Cecília Cruz, Milena Tan and Rebecca Andrade. 

The photo that is making it's way around the Gymnternet is a photo of Alexandrov greeting each of his new athletes after a morning practice.



There are several more photos of the training camp posted on the page. Here is one of Alexandrov looking over the girls while they train on beam.


Here is Alexandrov overseeing some conditioning drills.


Of course, if you want more information and want to see more photos visit the Brazilian Gymnastics Federation Facebook page.
