Russia's Lala KRAMARENKO was the most successful gymnast with two titles (hoops and clubs) and achieved with the tire the absolute highest rating (21,565) of this first Junior World Championships. ITALY (5x silver) and ISRAEL (1x silver, 4x bronze) follow on the other medal ranks. Surprisingly, Ukraine remained without any medal ...
From Australia to Brazil via Egypt, Singapore and Slovakia, the world’s very best junior rhythmic gymnasts had travelled from far and wide to show off their skills in the home of the sport. Three days of intense competition in Moscow’s gleaming new "Irina Viner-Usmanova Gymnastics Palace" are finished now ...

The new arena, designed in the Russian style, accommodates up to 4,000 spectators, and the arena dome will resemble the endless starry sky,” so said Ms. Irina Viner-Usmanova, not only the long-time head coach of the Russian team, also the president of the Russian Rhythmic Gymnastics Federation and the building was constructed in her honour.
