Biography

Anna Rizatdinova of the Ukraine placed 10th in the individual all-around event at the 2012 London Olympics, but her upward trajectory in the years since makes her a favorite for a place on the podium in Rio. She has one world championships gold medal, hoops in 2013, and two all-around medals, silver in 2013 and bronze in 2014. At 2015 Worlds she finished fifth in the all-around but won three bronze medals in the non-Olympic single apparatus events. Rizatdinova has said that Ukraine’s political instability in 2014 affected her training, as riots in Kiev sometimes made it unsafe to travel to her training center. But she added that the political situation made her feel more patriotic and her dream is to raise the Ukrainian flag at the Rio Olympics.
