Last weekend in Saint-Petersburg passed the all-Russian competitions in all disciplines of acrobatic rock-n-roll, which was attended by more than 1200 athletes from 26 regions of the country.
In the most difficult and therefore most prestigious and spectacular discipline – “M-class mixed” – second place went to Moscow a couple composed by Dmitri Alexeev and the supposed youngest daughter of Russian President Vladimir Putin Catherine Tikhonova.
They beat five-time world Champions Ivan Yudin and Olga Sbitneva, losing only to the hosts of the tournament – a couple from St. Petersburg in the composition of Ivan Kudryashov and Margarita Charkovsky.
The program of performances of athletes consisted of two parts and included performance equipment legs and the acrobatics, reports the Agency “R-Sport”.
Acrobatic rock-n-roll is officially recognized in Russia since 1986 and this year celebrates 30-year anniversary. This sport is actively developing in eight Federal districts and more than 30 regions of the country, and our athletes are in the world elite.
We will add that Putin never explicitly denied the possible relationship with Katerina Tikhonova, though, and mentioned that he had read in the online editions of news about their alleged relatives.
