“The queen of sports” — that’s how the trainees call Irina Viner. She’s an outstanding coach, a beautiful and strong woman. All her life has been about overcoming. And she taught her pupils, the Olympic champions Mina Kabaeva, Yana Kudryavtseva, Margarita Mamun to overcome themselves. Irina Viner can’t imagine her life out of the gym. She repeats that talent needs to be worked off, and believes that rhythmic gymnastics is not a sport — it’s art.
