Russia's twice Olympic rhythmic gymnastics champion, Evgenia Kanaeva, is retiring at the age of 22 to take up an official role in the sport. Before she does that, RT offers a chance to look back at the record-breaking star in action.
Russia's Evgenia Kanaeva has become the first woman to win two Olympic rhythmic gymnastics all-around titles. The 22-year-old outshone another Russian, Daria Dmitrieva, on Saturday as the duo finished well ahead of other opponents.
Gabby Douglas has added the all-around title to the one she won with the US team two nights ago. The American showed the most solid performance of the day, leaving two Russian hopefuls, Viktoria Komova and Aliya Mustafina, without gold once again.
