Jastrjembskaia makes her home in Madison, Alabama.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher


""This book represents a truly scientific analysis of rhythmic gymnastics-never done as a whole before. Once you have read it carefully, you'll realize how difficult and long the road to real mastery of this sport is. So far, the achievements of rhythmic gymnastics as a sport are far ahead of the literature written about it. In this respect, this book will show you that including the sport in the Olympics was not accomplished merely by chance. This is a brilliant primer for coaches.""
Vera Atkinson
Press Officer, British Gymnastics
World Champion, Rhythmic Gymnastics-Group Exercises (1968, 1971)

""This book is an interesting overview of rhythmic gymnastics written from the Eastern European perspective.""
Nancy Marshall
