(1 vote, average 5.00 out of 5)

Featured in the July/August issue of International Gymnast magazine, 2019 European all-around champion Nikita Nagornyy of Russia told IG his success in various facets of life comes from his positively channeled restlessness.

“It is very difficult, but I can’t do only one thing,” said Nagornyy, who has his own Youtube channel on which he shares videos he produces with nearly 190,000 subscribers, runs his own gym club and is married to fellow 2016 Olympic team silver medalist Daria Spiridonova. “I have a lot of energy.”

Nagornyy said several factors will need to cooperate for him and his teammates to succeed at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

“It is a lot of everything,” he said “I will do everything in my power. And of course, with God's help.”

“My attitude towards our gymnasts is always friendly, and no matter which gymnast from Russia will win, the main thing is that it is the country’s victory,” he said. “We have no problems in camaraderie. Competition within the team gives impetus to all the guys, including me.”
