Age 27 years

Achievements: The captain of the women’s volleyball team “Yaroslavna-TMZ”, for which I have been playing for almost 10 years. Together with the team, Yaroslavna won the right to participate in the Major League A tournament – in the second most powerful division of Russian volleyball. But due to financial difficulties, the team was unable to enter this tournament and continued to play in the Major League “B”. We do not give up and continue to fight.

Interesting fact: I do not consider myself a beauty, but there were moments when I was prejudiced because of my appearance. Relations with the so-called girlfriends did not even work out very well. I have many acquaintances, but few real friends. This is probably how it should be.

What’s next: I’m not a fan of changing surroundings. I like everything in Yaroslavna, so together with the team we will try to get through to the Major League “A” and attract attention to ourselves.

Age 23 years

Achievements: Graduate of the Caprice Dance Club (2002-2011), laureate of the All-Russian competition in Kazan (2010). Currently, the cheerleader is a member of the Lucky star cheerleader.

Interesting Facts: It seems to me that I was born dancing, all my childhood at home I danced in front of the mirror under a cassette tape recorder, then my mother at the age of 10 sent me to the Kapriz dance club, where I studied dance for 9 years in a large friendly family and made friends with girls there, with which we are now dancing in the Lucky star support group. For me, dance is like a drug that I have enjoyed for 13 years now and I just can’t stop.

What’s next: I plan to dance as long as fate and health allow me. And if even further, then my cherished dream is to give birth to a daughter who will continue my hobby!

Natalia Ivanova, cheerleading

Age 23 years

Achievements: Graduated from Yaroslavl State Technical University with a degree in Economics and Enterprise Management (in the chemical industry) with honors.

Interesting fact: I always looked at cheerleading girls with their mouths open – they were so beautiful, slim, athletic and funny. I was lucky that my mother knew the coach of the only support group “Grace” at that time in the city of Yaroslavl – Yulia Igorevna Tikhomirova, who advised me to take my daughter to this sport. So I got there at the age of 14, linking my life with this favorite activity. And for 9 years now I have been giving myself to the dance direction.

What’s next: I work at the “City TV” presenter of the weather forecast. In addition, I really like to be active in social activities at my beloved university. I am a member of the YSTU Students’ Union, where I help students in staging dance numbers for various university and interuniversity events.

Achievements: Five-time European champion, three-time world champion, Olympic champion in 2008, Honored Master of Sports in rhythmic gymnastics.

Interesting fact: She came to the sport for her sister, since at that time she was 4 years old and did not go to school, she did not take to any other circles – she was still small. I didn’t want to stay at home. After working out for 7 years, I decided to end up with sports, I hardly did it for a year, then, having switched to another coach, I fell in love with gymnastics again.

What’s next? Create a strong family. Now only at the initial step. And there are a lot of plans.

Alexandra Savicheva, kudo

Age 17 years

Achievements: Black belt, 1st dan. I am a 5-time winner of the Russian championship and the winner of the world championship in 2014. And if about cups and medals, then I have about 80 cups and about 100 medals And at the last tournament at the Russian championship in 2015 I was recognized as the best athlete of the year and the best technique in the tournament …

Interesting fact: My parents gave me to such a fighting sport as kudo when I was 7 years old. I was little and still didn’t know exactly what I wanted, so I also went in for swimming and dancing for several years in parallel. And I still remember how I entered the hall for the first time. Mom jokingly said: “We are leading the future champion.” The coach smiled. But from the first days of training, I was different from everyone, and the coach devoted most of his time to me. Since kudo is a young sport, there were no kudo girls in Yaroslavl at that time. Therefore, I performed among boys until about 11 years old. And absolutely did not allow anyone to win. The first serious tournament in my career was the Russian championship, then I only trained for a year and immediately took 3rd place. Honestly, I didn’t even know that this was the country’s championship, I went out and fought, not paying attention to what kind of rival was in front of me.

What’s next? For 10 years now, as I have been doing kudo, the level is completely different, the competition is growing, but on the contrary, it moves me forward. My coach calls me “a samurai in a female guise”, I always keep this in my head and never stop there. Therefore, the World Cup and the World Championship are ahead in the adult category. This is my goal, which I strive for.

For a long time she was engaged in dancing and only at the university did she try herself as a cheerleader.

Interesting fact: I came to the support group by chance (they offered me to go to the casting), I never thought that this kind of activity would be able to pull me in so much.

Then she decided to try her hand at a modern style and for two years was a soloist of the Extreme Style dance group. 8 years in the support group of HC Lokomotiv.

An interesting fact. At the age of 9, I found myself playing hockey with my parents. Seeing the performance of the Lokomotiv team support group, I realized: “This is what I want.” Dreams are destined to come true! A few years later, my mother accidentally saw an advertisement for a casting for Grazia. I started to prepare hard and thanks to my mother who supported me throughout all 3 rounds, I successfully passed the selection.

What’s next? Trying to live “here and now”, to appreciate every day I have lived, I never stop thinking about the future. I am always in dancing, and dancing is always in me. And also, as a “real girl”, I dream of a cozy house where kids run around with a mischievous gleam in their eyes, where relatives gather and share something important and intimate, and, most importantly, that there is a loving and reliable man nearby.
