Podium Training At The University Summer Games

Summer University Games (or Universiade Games) are here! They're going on as we speak. Tomorrow, the gymnastics competition starts (although since I'm 10 hours behind Kazan presently, it's closer to tomorrow there than I am here).

Elizabeth of Rewriting Russian Gymnastics posted podium training pictures on her Facebook page of the Russian team training on the podium. The girls are training with new head coach, Evgeny Grebyonkin and newly transplanted coach, Anton Stolyar, the former Italian junior national team coach.

Nice shorts, Stolyar. He looks like he's ready for a dip in the pool. Aliya Mustafina looks like she could use one too. Although I think she looks so wiped because she's getting over the flu. Ick. No fun.

Here is Tatiana Nabieva, whom we haven't seen in a couple of years.

Ksenia Afanasyeva listing to Evgeny Grobyonkin.
