Vladimir Putin’s sex-obsessed gymnast girlfriend raged at judges who denied Russia gold
Vladimir Putin’s sex-obsessed gymnast girlfriend Alina Kabaeva came out of hiding to slam rhythmic gymnastic judges at the Tokyo Olympics after Russia failed to take home gold
Vladimir Putin’s Olympic gold medal-winning girlfriend Alina Kabaeva came out of hiding last year to launch into a stunning rant at rhythmic gymnastics judges in Tokyo.
Kabaeva, who won bronze in all-around at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney and gold in the same category at Athens 2004, agreed to a rare appearance on television to defend the performance of Dina Averina and criticise the judgement of the officials.
The 38-year-old, who was once described as “full of sex” by photographer Mikhail Korolov following a magazine shoot, is thought to have several children with Putin with details of their relationship never being published in Russia.
Just months after she wished the gymnasts support having been out of the public eye for almost three years, she lashed out after Dina Averina lost out to Linoy Ashram of Israel in the individual all-around amid controversial scores.
On TV, Kabaeva said: “Dina Averina’s performance was perfect. Unlike her rival from Israel (who) made a gross mistake.
“That mistake should have been worth a point, but they only took 0.7 points. Olympic (golds) are not won with such mistakes. It took them six minutes to give her points…
Kabaeva and team-mate Irina Tchachina were stripped of their medals in individual and group events at the 2001 tournament having tested positive for a banned diuretic.
The tests had been done months earlier at the 2001 Goodwill Games in Brisbane, Australia, and led to Ukraine securing individual all-around gold with Belarus subsequently moving up to silver and Bulgaria taking bronze.
