Russian Olga Kapranova is among the best rhythmic gymnasts in the world. Born in Moscow in 1987, the young blond continues to stun world audiences with her indefectible performance and astounding grace.

Instructed by Irina Viner, coach to Athens champion Alina Kabaeva and silver medalist Irina Tchachina, Kapranova has reached the top echelon of rhythmic gymnastics after rounding up an impressive collection of achievements in various international gymnastic events.

Kapranova took the world title for individual all-round in the 2008 Kiev World Cup after only placing third in the 2007 World Championships. With a good shot at the gold, Kapranova will be the focus of attention going into the Beijing Olympics.
