didn't look at all that some you finally are still you and i really got worried in the final what in the end you want to hunch needed as desirable and that's the main thing will be for now we're just going to focus on preparing for the little bit. well already olympic bound here who won the women's one hundred meters west on thursday with each of the seeds music out of three key outmuscle spello in kinda over a second to clinch the second gold medal. for behavior that cemented her position in russia's national team by winning the world and we just that's why. we have a good team at the moment especially recently unlike four years ago where it was a little fraction of our training has gone to good job preparing us for the team a state friend so we'll go to the impacts and high spirits and we'll be supporting each other what everyone is in great shape and what they all want to go to the olympics fortunately the national championships probably only a grand jury can qualify and there's
a sportsman who does have to go before me under par right now but this is part and competition is really tough out of. out of the water there's also good news for russia and stuff into the pool not world champion has recovered from the ligament damage and a comeback in the summer olympics and. it's. the soviet union used to be the world's best in women's gymnastics producing a player throughout the top gymnasts who brought home thirty three olympic golds eleven more than or a tribal romania the global competition in the sport has increased dramatically over the course we did he. put in the guinness good students completely from delhi there are forty two medals at stake overall at the olympics and the last world championships these medals went to twenty one countries but slowly in the women's events just forty six teams will battle for gold in our priority is the team competition because it's the most prestigious the all around adventure come second
we have euro we're mustaf you know one of the first medal in twenty years for russia in the all around event the world championship that i think you know we are counting on her new national russia's brightest stars. twenty to an all around world champion. suffered a serious knee injury at last year's european championships and was ruled out for more than six months however the seventy year old is back and preparing for early for her most important event so far built on the olympics. for sure i've almost recovered from my injury i competed at the domestic championship and was happy with my performance i doubt i'm the biggest star on the team however i feel the responsibility of the olympics will be even higher than at the world championships when you get to. before her injury me stuff and i had the most difficult program in the world we're trying not to rush a comeback the recovery is going well and she's regaining her form step by step
she's already training at full strength and will be ready for london in. just two gymnast who have suffered such a knee injury a year before the olympics have made successful returns but none of them won the girl. however some ponding say that the stuff it was injury might be a blessing for her the last reigning world champion to win olympic gold was ukraine silly. back in the one nine hundred ninety six. so perhaps by missing last year's world championships the brit games focus is off russia's best medal hopes and could ensure she finishes where she belongs on top of the podium and say mother both parties. and before we go it's just time to update you about the moscow football daughter that's taking place right now and it is down. one else this time some of the certainty that you know the one they're trying to miss by one ounce of.
