TWENTY YEAR OLD NATIONAL TRICKS RECORD FINALLY FALLS !
Way back in 1979, Russia’s Natalia Rumyantseva caught international headlines with a new World Tricks Record of 5,900 points. What followed was a great ding-dong between Natalia and Venezuela’s Anna Maria Carrasco. Both were extraordinary athletes. Anna Maria broke the World Record nine times and Natalia broke it twice in 1979 and again in 1980 , 1982 and 1983. She finally pushed her score to 7850 points and that remained a National Tricks Record in Russia for a total of 20 years !
No National Record ever lasts forever – but a 20 year run is an amazing achievement. Finally, our World Cup Russian Star Tatiana Churakova has made her own history this month with a new National Russian National Tricks Record of 8,120 points.
Congratulations Tatiana – and we hope to see you soon again at a World Cup Stop.
