Athletes from Svetlana Khorkina Gymnastics Center started training in Ufa

The training process began at the Svetlana Khorkina Gymnastics Center in Ufa. Young trainees of the sports acrobatics department have begun preparations for the first city competition, "Crystal Snowflake", said the Minister of Sports of Bashkiria Ruslan Khabibov on his Telegram channel.

We add that in 2023 the Svetlana Khorkina Gymnastics Center plans to host the Russian Championship and the Spring Swallows children's tournament. Svetlana Khorkina said this in December last year at a Council for the Development of Physical Culture and Sports meet.

“Unfortunately, there are not so many competitions among children in artistic gymnastics. I hope it will become all-Russian,” said Vice President of the Russian Artistic Gymnastics Federation, two-time Olympic champion Svetlana Khorkina.
