Nabieva: I will stay in Gymnastics until I die

Many have been celebrating the planned return of Tatiana Nabieva to competition. But has she ever really retired?

When asked till what age she plans to continue, she answered: “Until I die”. Her actual plan is to compete until a serious injury or until she realized she can’t perform at a high level anymore. When she retires, she plans to focus on coaching full time. She dreams of opening her own gym in Dagestan. …

When asked whether she regrets not making the 2012 Olympic team:

“That’s a very painful topic for me. Yes, of course, I regret it very much. If I had the opportunity, I would turn back the time and change everything, I’d do everything I could to make the team and even more.” …
