More about BESSONOVA Anna:
Anna Bessonova burst out on the intenational scene in 1999 and won numerous medals since then. She eraned the All Around bronze medal at the 2004 Olympic Games, the silver at the 2003 World Championships and another bronze at the 2001 World Championships. She also won the titles ont the Hoop and on the Clubs at the 2003 Worlds.

The youngest in the Ukrainian team during the World Championships in Osaka in 1999, she made such a good impresion that the RG specialists wrote her name immediately in their notebooks down.

Bessonova's culture of body movement, her elegance and overall appeal seems to have been inherited from her famous Ukrainian predecessors: Irina Deriugina (World champion in 1977 and 1979), who is nowadays coaching Anna together with her mother Albina Deriugina, the doyen of Ukrainian Rhythmic Gymnastics; the 1992 Olympic champion Alexandra Timoshenko; the 1996 Olympic Champion Ekaterina Serebrianskaya; the 1997 World and European champion Elena Vitrichenko, and numerous other World class gymnasts.

For two years Anna took the role of the permanent "Princess" in the Ukrainian team, remaining in the shadow of her senior teammate Tamara Erofeeva. This situation changed in the summer 2002, when she won her first World Gold medal as a member of the Ukrainian Group (Ribbon routine), in New Orleans. She dominated the World Cup Final in Stuttgart in November, by winning the first place on the Hoop, the Rope and the Clubs.

The year 2003 presented more evidence that International Rhythmic Gymnastics is now having a real challenger to the mighty Russian "RG Queens" Kabaeva and Tchachina, who are back on the competition floor after nearly a year.

From the beginning of the season 2003, Anna added to her collection another "triple Gold" at the 2003 Europeans in Riesa (Hoop, Clubs and Ribbon), meanwhile winning the Ukrainian National title for the second time and numerous medals at World Cup Qualifiers and Grand Prix events.

Anna Bessonova is definitely one of the brightest stars of Rhythmic Gymnastics nowadays. The daughter of the famous Ukaininan football player Vladimir Bessonov and World group Champion in rhythmic gymnastics has always wanted to become as famous as her parents. And she genuinely managed to do this as at present Anya or Bess, how her fans like to name her, is one of the world leaders, triple World and European Champion. It isn't surprising that Anna hardly having appeared at the floor has charmed the experts and spectators by a rare combination of plastic expressiveness and technical skill. Anna can execute the most difficult composition with magic easiness, "submit" the most intricate lace of movements at the dashing speed, demonstrating the irreproachable holding of the apparatus. We know Anna's strong character, her family sports endurance and we all hope that it will help her to reach her sports. /UKR
