One thought on “Aleftina Pryakhina

  1. Klimenco fue su entrenador, pero no fue tan exitosa como Elena Mukhina. Eso demuestra que puedes tener un “buen entrenador”, pero si no tienes una gimnasta talentosa y con la calidad de Mukhina , tus logros no serán muy exitosos. Esto lo comentó porque le restregaron a Mukhina que llegó a ser campeona gracias a su entrenador.
    Pero realmente fue la calidad y talento de Mukhina quien hizo famoso a Klimenko.
