The World Games Athlete of the Year 2018

Marina Chernova & Georgii Pataraia - Gymnastics

The Russian Acrobatic Gymnastics mixed pair of Marina Chernova and Georgii Pataraia have won every major gold medal there is in the world, among them the 26 th FIG Acrobatic Gymnastics World Championships in Antwerp (BEL), the 2017 World Games in Wroclaw (POL), the 2017 European Championships, the 2016 Worlds and the 2015 European Games.

Each time these talented 22-year-olds compete together, there is a sense that magic happens, with the seemingly pure harmony found between Chernova, with her sparrow weight of 35 kg, and her massive partner who sends her soaring into the air with an effortless elegance.
