Alexandra Kiroi-Bogatyreva: “Gymnasts usually retire between the ages of 21 and 24. I want to make the most of it”

Australian Commonwealth Games champion Alexandra Kiroi-Bogatyreva has gave an interview to the Victorian Institute of Sport.

Idman.biz reports that she moved her training to the National Gymnastics Arena in Baku, Azerbaijan, in 2021.

“The training facilities in Baku are based in an arena stadium that hosts world championships for all gymnastic sports. It is a very unique experience to have the floor that we compete on made available for our training. I don’t know of any other training venues in the world that do that,”.

We train every day for 8–10 hours. The day is broken down into cardio, strengthening, a rhythmic warm-up and the day’s plan. The plan may be to complete 3 clean routines without a mistake, or to be focused on movement repetitions.

When leading up to competitions we train longer hours, often not leaving the gym until we have perfected our routine

Rhythmic gymnasts usually retire between the ages of 21 and 24. Turning 22 this year, I want to make the most of it”
