KAPRANOVA AND SESSINA AGAIN – A SILVER DAY FOR BESSONOVA!

Clubs and Ribbon finals

KAPRANOVA AND SESSINA AGAIN – A SILVER DAY FOR BESSONOVA!

CLUBS - Defending Champion Olga Kapranova

Her exercise, choreographed to a ballet music from Tchaikovsky is, without any doubt, one of the most difficult and spectacular routines seen in Patras- Gold.

In both these Finals Bessonova seemed so much stronger and motivated to fight, compared to the Qualifications! Excellent new routine (“Gladiator”), revealing yet another feature of her powerful presence on the competition floor- Silver.

Sessina’s preciseness is difficult to beat. Add to this stability, and her place at any rostrum is guaranteed- Bronze.

  1. Olga Kapranova (RUS)- 18.650
  2. Anna Bessonova (UKR)- 18.400
  3. Vera Sessina (RUS)- 18.325
  4. Inna Zhukova (BLR)- 17.675
  5. Aliya Garaeva (AZE)- 17.425
  6. Irina Risenson (ISR)- 16.675
  7. Aliya Yussupova (KAZ)- 16.625
  8. Liubov Charkashyna (BLR) 16.500

RIBBON: Defending Champion Vera Sessina

Sessina’s pirouette technique could challenge ANY prima ballerina in the world and pirouettes are the most important elements when it comes to the Ribbon. Add to this the traditional Russian knowledge how to handle this 7meters long apparatus, and one could explain how the Champion from Baku defended her title.

Arguably, this was the “cleanest” execution seen in Patras; hopefully, many more will come Gold.


Bessonova’s Ribbon routine- one of the nicest interpretations of “Bolero” seen in the world of the Artistic sports, along Torvill and Dean’s on the ice in Sarajevo 1984 and Anelia Ralenkova’s (BUL) in the 80s. Pleasure to watch! – Silver.


This was the first Individual medal of the 2004 Olympic and twice World Champion (1999 and 2003), Alina Kabaeva in Patras to add to the well deserved Team Gold of Russia- Bronze


Audience darling? Nobody can challenge Natalia Godunko (UKR). After the turmoil she has been through in Patras, she reached a Final- this only is a unique achievement!

  1. Vera Sessina (RUS)- 18.650
  2. Anna Bessonova (UKR)- 18.350
  3. Alina Kabaeva (RUS)- 17.225
  4. Aliya Yussupova (KAZ)- 17.175
  5. Inna Zhukova (BLR)- 16.950
  6. Natalia Godunko (UKR)- 16.775
  7. Irina Risendon (ISR)-16.650
  8. Dinara Gimatova (AZE)- 16.650
