Anastasiya Grishina’s money problems

Anastasiya was a super talented gymnast who had many problems during her career.

You may have heard a rumour that she’s currently homeless. Not quite.

While it seems crazy to many Western people that Grishina at 21 is married and has a 8-month baby, it’s actually also a pretty normal age in Russia to get married and have kids.

Another comment: when the article talks about Grishina being “on the streets” or “thrown off to the street” it doesn’t mean she’s literally homeless. It’s an expression in Russian that means someone lost the place they used to live in or they were thrown away from home, but it doesn’t mean that they now don’t have any place to live. It’s sort of a poetic exaggeration. She actually rents an apartment. It’s not an ideal situation and rents are sky high in Moscow, but she’s not living on the streets, so don’t worry about that. …
