(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Profiled in the September 2019 issue of International Gymnast magazine, Anastasia Alistratava of Belarus told IG that she has reconciled her fourth-place finish on uneven bars at this spring’s European Championships.

"In the final, I tried to perform well,” said Alistratava, who earned the highest execution score of the final. “It is a pity that people who believe I was worthy of a medal were not among the judges. But sport is sport. The strongest wins.”

Born October 16, 2003, in Olga Korbut’s hometown of Grodno, Alistratava began training at age 4. She credits her previous and current coaches for assuring the foundation and continuity of her progress.

Irina Murza instilled a love of gymnastics, sports education and the original correct technique,” Alistratava says. “After that I continued to train with Olga Knysh (wife of Korbut’s late coach, Renald Knysh), whom I work with now. Thanks to her, I have successful performances. Many other coaches care about me. They help me develop in every possible way.”
