Hopefully this isnt a stupid question.Thank you very much if you can tell me. :)

Zarina: hated by Viner retired early around 2005. She gained quite some weight now.

Olga Belova: Retired around 2002-2003 because others (Utyasheva for example) took her place. She was a very beautiful gymnast and around 2000 she and Tchachina were about at the same spot in the Russian team (behind Kabaeva and Barsoukova). It's a shame she retired so early. She coaches now in Moscow (or at least she did in 2004)

Liayssan Utyasheva: she had a tragedy in her career. She broke one foot and kept training and competing though she complained about pain then she broke her other foot as well. She kept complaining about pain but the teamdoctor said she was just trying to get out of competitions because she couldn't handle the pressure. Until, after a decent examination, the injuries were discovered. She was out for a very long time. She tried a come back in 2005 but I think she's not in the team anymore.
She did a gala performance at the Alexei Nemov show in 2006 together with Irina Tchachina. She has matured a lot.
