Oh hello there. I see that, like Miss Bitcherova, you are interested in hearing about the latest adventures of me, Laysan Utyasheva, 6 time world champion, Olympic champion, and certainly one of the greatest gymnasts of all-time. And most beautiful too.
This has certainly been an exciting month. Can you imagine my surprise when, on my birthday, I was officially declared an Honored Master of Sport. While I have, rightfully so, referred to myself as an Honored Master of Sport in all interviews, the poor people at the ministry of sport never quite got around to actually bestowing the title upon me. Imagine that! After everything I have accomplished, they somehow forget to do it. Fortunately, the great Irina Viner set them straight.
The birthday bash was certainly an entertaining evening, thank you very much. Many guests such as Nikolai Tsiskaridze Oksana Fedorova, and Andrei Malakhov came to pay tribute to me. Yes,this was certainly very flattering that such celebrities acknowledge my many talents. It’s true none of my former teammates showed up. Not even Irina Tchachina. But my manager (and dear mother) said they’re not important, and they would only be jealous of me and ruin my day.
And undoubtedly, you have heard the news that I have a new boyfriend. I’m sure you’ve seen his picture. Very handsome, isn’t he? Certainly more so than Yagudin, Orlando, Leonardo, Jake, Dolph, and the rest of my former paramours.
But my life is not all glitz and glamour. I recently performed in Luzhniki to honor the gold medalists of the 1980 Olympics. It is true they were considering asking one of the local sports schools or one of the current RG stars to perform, but I told Navka, who was hosting the event, that it was only fitting that an Olympic champion perform in a ceremony for Olympic champions. Fortunately, she saw the logic.
So whats next? I have many TV projects going on so you will certainly see and hear plenty of me. No doubt, you will hear me lend my vast expertise in rhythmic gymnastics at the 2010 World Championships. There certainly is no one more capable of providing insightful commentary than yours truly, one of the most decorated gymnasts in rhythmic gymnastics history.
So until we meet again, you may peruse youtube and watch many of my memorable performances. But for now, so long!
