Ok let’s continue talking about the 2102 Summer Olympics that will start in London in 16 days. Practically all of the teams that are planning to take part in the most fascinating sports spectacle have already finalized their rosters. And today we will talk about artistic gymnasts who will wear Russian uniform at the London Games.

The rules of competing at the main start of 4 years have been changed since 2008 and the main amendment is that the number of team members has been reduced to just 5 athletes not 6 as it was in China 4 years ago. These means that each country can bring just 5 men and 5 ladies to London. Reserved athletes are not allowed to live in the Olympic village; they should continue training in their home countries and come at first call to London in case somebody is injured.
