New Ukrainian Star Rises

I have been following the young Ukrainian Eleonora Romanova and hoping that she would go to more competitions so we can enjoy her performances. This routine from the training for the World Cup in Pesaro, Italy, truly proves that she is ready to join the world elite:



Eleonora Romanova was born in 1988 in Krasnodon, Ukraine. She moved to Kiev when she was 11 to start working with Albina Deriugina. Romanova was the 2013 absolute Ukrainian junior champion winning golds at all 4 finals. At the 2012 European Junior Championships, she placed 6th with hoop and 8th with ribbon.

In an interview with the Ukrainian media, her father said that she is a very determined person, while the journalists noted that she looks like a professional model. I am very glad she picked gymnastics, and not modeling, and hope we get to see her perform more interesting routines in the future, so that all of her talent would truly shine.
