Yana Kudryavtseva at Bucharest World Cup
This competitive season started not so successfully for Yana Kudryavtseva. But at this last weekend’s Bucharest World Cup in Romania the World Rhythmic All-around champion returned her positions.
Several weeks ago at the Moscow Grand Prix Yana lost the title there and her teammate Margarita Mamun became a winner. It was a surprise that Yana Kudryavtseva didn’t win a single individual title. After these competitions the 17 year-old gymnast went on struggling to prove that she deserves the victory. In Lisbon, she qualified for only two event finals, her poorest result at a World Cup in more than a year.
But there is no doubt that Yana’s capabilities should be evaluated in the highest level. She proved it at Bucharest World Cup where she not only swept the golds in the All-around and in event finals but tallied a monster 75.950 points in the All-around, including three scores above 19 -- 19.050 with the Ball, 19.100 with the Clubs and 19.000 with the Ribbon. That 75.950 is the highest score she has ever reached in international competition, and more than 0.6 above what she earned to win her second consecutive World All-around title last year in Izmir (TUR).
