Happy Birthday to World Champion & Olympic Silver Medalist Maia Tabakova!

I would like to take a moment to remember and remind you of my favorite rhythmic group ever, the Bulgarian group, which competed in Atlanta!

Today, Maia Tabakova, one of the long-standing members of this amazing group, celebrates her birthday. I also congratulate Maia on recently becoming a mom!

Here is a routine we all love:

I also found this old picture of Maia and some of her teammates with short biographical information about each of them. However, this document does not list all the medals Maia won in her long and productive career from both European and World championships.

Maia also dazzled the audience as a performer for Circus Reno and Cirque de Soleil in the United States. Several years ago she suffered a serious accident while performing and all of her fans around the world were praying for her fast recovery.

I hope that Maia's birthday will bring her the absolute best of health and joy. Maia, may your life always be filled with the grace and strength that you so eloquently embody! Your fans on different continents think of you on your special day!
