|More about PANOVA Bianca:|
|Bianca Panova was the first Rhythmic Gymnastics competitor to achieve the perfect All Around score 40.00 points at World Championships (Varna BUL in 1987).
Her first coach was Vera Tomova in LEVSKI Gymnastic Club, Sofia. Believe it or not, initially she was judged as "No perspective". It was Tomova's pushing and convincing, which made Bianca herself work to her extremes and made the specialists stare at "Tomova's Prodigy".
When at last, on the 1st of August 1982 Bulgaria's leading coach Neshka Robeva decided Bianca could well be in the National Team, Panova was already leaving the impression of "unsual flow style of movement" and flexibility.
Bianca set her amazing record at the WC in Varna 87, with unbelievable ease, turning the Championships into her real "Prima Donna's Gala". In fact, she never knew another score during the competition other than 10.00 points, and finished with 5 gold medals to add to her collection.
She was technically a brillant, extremely elegant and artistic gymnast.
Now she lives and coaches RG in Belgium together with her husband, physiotherapist by profession, Tchavdar Ninov. Mother of a son, Richard, born in 1988.v.atkinson.
