Anastasia Ilyinichna Bliznyuk (born 28 June 1994 in Zaporizhia, Ukraine) is a Russian rhythmic gymnast. She is a two-time Olympics champion, a World champion, a three-time European champion and a Tokyo Olympics sivler medalist, all in the group all-around event.

Interesting Fact

Anastasia is a legend of rhythmic gymnastics. She performed at three Olympic Games, and returned home with a medal after each one. At the London 2012 and Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympics Bliznyuk took gold, while at the Tokyo 2020 Olympicc she only won a silver medal. Nonetheless, Bliznyuk is the only rhythmic gymnast to win three medals in the Olympic Games. Before the Tokyo Olympics, she even dropped out of the gold winning Russian group, but managed to come back before the Games. At the moment, Anastasia is not planning to retire. If she wins another medal at the next Olympics, her record will be unbeatable.
