Russia Extends Lead at Rhythmic Worlds
(12 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Russia increased its team lead Wednesday as qualifications continued at the 30th Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships in Moscow.


Lyubov Cherkashina helped Belarus move to second in the team rankings.

Olympic champion Yevgenia Kanayeva topped qualification with the ball, scoring 29.000. Teammate Daria Dmitriyeva was second (28.600) ahead of Belarusian Lyubov Cherkashina (27.500).

Azerbaijan's Aliya Garayeva led ribbon qualification with 27.400. Kazakhstan's Anna Alyabyeva is second with 26.500, slightly ahead of Israel's Irina Risenson (26.475).

After three events, Kanayeva leads teammate Daria Kondakova, with Garayeva third. On Tuesday, Kanayeva won the hoop final and Kondakova won with the rope.

Garayeva, like many of the world's top gymnasts, trains alongside the Russians at Irina Viner's center in Novogorsk, outside Moscow.

"It's no secret that I live and train in Moscow, at Irina Viner's academy," Garayeva said. "The Russian capital has become a second home to me for a long time. My parents live here, my dad works here. I have many friends here. So performing in Moscow for me is like that in Baku. When can I beat the Russian women? Of course, only a poor soldier does not dream of becoming a general, but Russia is an unrivaled leader in rhythmic gymnastics. We are still very, very far away from catching up with Russia.

"I was told that at a press conference before worlds, Irina Viner called me one of the main rivals of the Russian gymnasts. That's nice, though I wouldn't say the same of myself. I must fight for third place at this world championships. If something suddenly happens to Zhenya Kanayeva or Daria Kondakova, I can possibly be second. But no higher."

Russia increased its lead in the team standings, but Belarus jumped ahead of Azerbaijan. The team medals will be determined Thursday after the ball and hoop qualification.

Individual finals for ball and hoop will be held Thursday evening.
