2012 Voronin Memorial
Congratulations to Anastasia Sidorova for winning the silver in the Floor exercise final at the 2012 Voronin Memorial! Viktoria Komova won Gold in the final, with Valeria Maksyuta (Israel) in 3'rd.The full results (in Russian) are available here.
Eva Kanyo Memorial 2012
The Russian team dominated the Eva Kanyo Memorial 2012 competition which took place in Hungary (in October)! Anastasia Sidorova competed with teammates Maria Kharenkova and Anastasia Dmitrieva. They dominated the meet in the first day, taking the highest team total by around sixteen points. Junior gymnast and Russia’s bright hope Maria Kharenkova finished with an AA score of 55.516, higher than even her senior teammate Sidorova.
Unfortunately towards the end of the meet, Anastasia suffered a minor ACL injury (as reported earlier) which kept her out of several future competitions.
The Russian team won Gold in the Team finals on the first day. Their score was 164.080.
On the second day, Anastasia won on the Vault (14.150) and Beam (14.066) finals. She also finished in 3'rd on the Uneven Bars.

Massilia Elite Gym Competition - Withdrawn
Anastasia Sidorova is listed to compete at the 2012 Elite Gym Massilia, but due to partially tearing her ACL in Hungary, she will be out of competition for 3 weeks. We wish her a full recovery!
Out of Olympic Squad - Injury
Sadly Anastasia Sidorova arrived home today at Rostov-on-Don due to her back pains returning. We don't believe she will be able to remain on the Olympic squad, so Anna Dementyeva has been selected in her place to remain on the squad for the Olympics.
Anastasia will have her back checked out at home and remain there to recover. We wish her a full recovery and it's sad to see her out yet again due to injury, especially from the Olympics :-( Anastasia suffered a string of bad luck with injuries, starting with a fall from a bicycle breaking her wrist, and later on, back problems.
Also, good luck to Anna Dementyeva and we wish her the the best for the Olympics.
Olympic Training Squad
As reported earlier, the final 8 members for consideration on the 5-member team at the London Olympics has been decided.
The training squad includes Ksenia Afanasyeva, Anastasia Grishina, Yulia Inshina, Viktoria Komova, Aliya Mustafina, Tatiana Nabiyeva, Maria Paseka and Anastasia Sidorova.
"We used three criteria for selection," Andrei Rodionenko told news agency RIA Novosti. "First were the results shown in three specific events: the Russian championships, the European championships and the Russian Cup. Second were the routines performed and their compliance with ideal qualities, difficulty and execution. The third was psychological — being strong-willed and showing fighting qualities in tough competitions."
Previously Anna Dementyeva was being considered for the squad, but due to a growth spurt and injury, she didn't perform well in Penza this year. In her place will be Tatiana Nabieva, whom is just returning to competitions after training at home. Previously the coaches weren't considering her, but after Tanya's performance (Winning a Bronze and Silver) at the competition, she was chosen for the squad.
In addition to the 5 members competing, two alternates will be chosen. They will remain in Moscow but will be prepared to head to London if required. The olympic team will be announced no later and likely around 7 July.
Pictures from the final day of the competition will be added later tonight!

On VTBRussia's website (created by VTB Bank, the lead sponsor of the Artistic Gymnastics Federation of Russia), you can take a virtual tour of Ozeroe Krugloe! (Round Lake, the National training facility) The interface is in Russian, but isn't too hard to figure out. It starts by asking you to choose to visit either the Men's or the Women's gym. From there, you can visit many areas, including the Gym itself, the rehabilitation and recovery facilities, the classroom, one of the dorm rooms, and reception area with displays of awards!The Virtual Gym
I also have many additional photos of Ozeroe Krugloe that aren't online yet, and will next week add a new section discussing all the facilities, along with the daily schedule for the gymnasts.
