The world and European champion, our golden girl Kamelia Dounavska, who was part of the legendary team of Neshka Robeva, is taking over the Greek National rhythmic gymnastics team. She officially starts on April 1st and her main goal will be the excellent performance of the team on the Olympic Games in London in 2012. “My first aim is to find the best way to communicate with the gymnasts, so they and I can do our best. We have practiced twice already and they are very good. They have the desire to work and the dreams to win many medals. So, together with a lot of work we will make those dreams come true,” said today the 39 year old Kamelia.

“Kamelia Dounavska is an outstanding name in the world rhythmic gymnastics and is one of the best coaches in the world. She is young, wants to work, she has many brave ideas and ambitions, which completely match out views,” said the president of the Greek Rhythmic Gymnastics Federation Tanasis Vasiliadis when he presented Kamelia to the Greek media. She takes the place of Marina Fateeva.

Together with her twin sister Adriana, Kamelia Dounavska is part of the “golden” generation in Bulgarian rhythmic gymnastics. Adriana was competing alone and Kamelia was in a team. She is the 1987 world champion, the 1988 European champion, and a 1988 silver medalist on the Olympic Games in Seoul.
