Nabieva vs Khorkina

Is it just me, or does Nabieva remind you of Queen Svetlana Khorkina?
I know I've posted about Tatiana Nabieva before, but at the time I didn't see the same edge and style that Khorkina portrayed. Once I saw Nabieva at Worlds I realized how much she reminded me of the 5.5 ft. diva, called Khorkina. And at the time, I didn't like the comparison. The more I've watched her though, the more I am impressed and enjoy the style she has. I think these two videos, (both done by spannytampson), sum up what I am talking about. And it's about time there was a good Nabieva montage on youtube!

PROFANITY WARNING: Don't watch montage with parents or important collegues around. Tons of cussing, but I think the song is perfect for Khorki.
And whether you love her or hate her, Khorkina is still an obsession.

  1. Hello there

    My name's Anna Griffin and I'm part of a film production company called Wellington Films. I came across your blog whilst researching gymnastics for a short film we are currently working on. The film is called Cold Warrior ( and it explores allegations of abuse in sport, concentrating around the 1970s:

    A young gymnast questions her dreams of Olympic glory when she discovers she is part of a sinister government plot to win at any cost.

    I would love the chance to open up communication with you as we feel it is really important, not only the film, but to gymnastics as a whole that we are doing everything properly and connecting with blog sites such as yours will really help us with this. You can follow us on our blog site too - Cold Warrior Film

    It would be great to hear back from you and if you have any questions then please do not hesitate to ask.

    Kindest regards


  2. Thanks so much for this information, I am eager to learn more about this project! Please keep updating on your site and I would love to stay in communication with you and your company!
