Russians dance to double gold in rhythmic gymnastics
Russia dominated the rhythmic gymnastics finals at Nanjing 2014 on 26 August, winning both gold medals on offer.
A graceful display saw Irina Annenkova (RUS) score 58.575 points to take the gold medal in the individual all-around final.
And despite leading the event from the first round, Annenkova revealed she had not been tempted to play it safe at any point.

“On the contrary; I wanted to do even more, because I wanted to increase the gap between me and the other competitors,” Annenkova said.
