THOMAS SCHRE YER (VARGA, FANS)
VARGA RETURNS TO HER GYM
ADRIENN Varga was the top Hungarian woman at the 1996
Olympics (28th all-around), and now she’s the head director at
Békéscsaba, the club where she trained along with Henrietta Onodi, a
1992 Olympic gold medalist on vault. As a gymnast, Varga was
extremely popular with fans, and the unique uneven bars dismount she
invented is a D-element in the Code of Points (layout-half-in, front pike
with a half-out). The photo here was snapped at the 2007 Leverkusen
Cup in Germany in October, and the good-natured Varga, 27, was only
too happy to oblige.
FANS FOREVER Flag-waving supporters of the Russian gymnasts
were out in force at the 2007 World Rhythmic Championships in Patras,
Greece. And their presence paid off, with Russia taking home eight of the
nine available gold medals. The most coveted title, however, went to
Ukraine’s Anna Bessonova, who won the all-around competition.
