This is a perfect photo, taken by Barny. Irina Kazakova with her coach stretchung to the limit. I've seen a lot of stretching trainings, even of world class gymnasts, but I've never seen so much degrees. Is Irina really the most flexible gymnast? I want to know your opinion. I think Irina is very talented because of her beauty, elegance and flexibility. if she can improve her choreography and especially her expression she can be the future star of RG. Your opinion?
Barny is selling a special Kazakova CD with a lot of more photos, even more degrees in stretching.

she's definitely the most flexible! She did a photosession with him? Cool! while there are others specialized in one type of flexbility (f.e. Bessonova and her legs, Pizetsky side splits) she's just AA superflexible

Barny made a phantastic shooting with Irina in Schmiden, the german RG tournament. Contact him directly for the Kazakova-CD:

Well yeah she is really flexible but she doesn't have that much strength I never seen her leaps to that degree like Anya Bessanova how ever you spell her last name but Irina is still amazing non the less.

"even more degrees in stretching"? Is that possible?? That's amazing - unbelievable - wow.

Thank you for sharing the pic, I hope it provides some inspiration to all the dancers/gymnasts out there. The human body is capable of some pretty amazing things!

wow, thats so cool. she's so flexible, but her leaps aren't that good :C it would be nice if her leaps would open as much as that.

that is insane. I guess you have to sacrifice a bit of strength for that degree of flexibility.

plus, just because she's flexible doesn't mean she has the strength to hold it there or use it in her leaps like Bessonova does. she still has a lot of improving to do with her flexibility.. controlling it i mean.

I think, and hope, that if she now focuses on RG mainly she'll improve her strenght, leaps, techniques etc. As a contortionist she didn't need to have the strenght to do amazing leaps so I guess she didn't train on that alot. I hope she can improve them with her flexibility she could do stunning leaps!

Well, it's a shame she doesn't know how to control her flexibility, and she can't even go oversplit in a backbend turn. (Like Kabaeva, who isn't that flexible)
And her apparatus handling is not very good either.. To use Kabaeva as an example, she's not as flexible as Kazakova, but she's got strength enough to make it look like she's ten times more flexy! She has better leaps and jumps, and better apparatus handling. I cannot see Kazakova as an important member of the Russian National team, because she is not good enough when she's outside the contortion studio.

Viner on the other hand does not agree with you and said Kazakova will be one of the top national team members after 2004.
From what I've read of Kazakova's bio she hasn't been doing RG all her life she switched often had bad training conditions quite, missed it came back etc. imo she's been doing more contortioning and circus than RG. Now that she's training in Novgorod things might change and she'll have to work on her strenght and techniques.


To use another example closer to Irina. Yussupova wasn't much more than superflexible around 2001 neither. Look what she did in 2-3 years.

she is very flexible, but maybe not the best. there's probably some other gymnast out there thats just as flexible or even better.

She's really flexible! One question:Is she a rhytmic gimnastic, 'cause she's not in the russian team that is going to the Olympic games. If someone wants to see more pics and videos of her, try irishok.ru .You won't understand a thing 'cause everything is written in russian but if you start clicking in all the links you'll find cool pics and videos of her training!

Can you imagine how good she'll be when she gets the strength to control that flexibility?

tapgirl: yes she's a member of the national team. That team though is slightly bigger than the three gymnasts who're going to the Olympics. She'll have to wait her turn like everybody else :)
