Russian Gymnastics Star Announces Retirement

Two-time Olympic champion, Yevgenia Kanaeva, has announced her decision to stop taking part in competitions after being elected the vice-president of the All-Russian Rhythmic Gymnastics Federation.

      "I'm going to end my career,” Kanaeva has told the press. “I could’ve stayed and keep working hard, but I want to learn something else besides the training process. I will probably try my hand at coaching, as well as executing my responsibilities in the Federation,” she added.

      After her triumph at the London Games, Kanaeva told the press that she may remain in the sport till Rio 2016, but her plans have changed.

      Besides two all-round Olympic titles in 2008 and 2012, the 22-year-old Kanayeva is a 17-time world champion and nine-time winner of the Summer Universiade.
