We met Natasha in Moscow, right after the European Cup in the Czech Republic. The girl will stay in the capital for only a few days and will go to her family in Saransk, because she has not been at home for more than a month and misses her family and friends very much. Natasha came with a large sports bag, which she carried with ease, as if it were empty. And then she took her BMX out of it, put it together, left it and went to choose a dress, do hair, makeup and selfies. It's amazing how much inner and physical strength this fragile girl has.

- Natasha, tell us how it all began?

- I got on my first BMX bike at the age of seven. As a child, my brother and I were engaged in a school dance club, and, by the way, I really liked to dance. At the same time, my brother was still fond of cycling and once took me to ride with him. Soon she did not notice how she got involved and began to master the technique of driving. Everything started spinning by itself. You don't even notice where children's sports end and professional sports begin. When I realized that children's sports were over, I decided that I would go to the end. Why did you have to start everything then?

- But we are still talking about ... a girl.

- Of course, when I quit dancing for BMX, there was there are a lot of questions from friends and acquaintances, because this is a rather traumatic sport. But my family has always been very supportive. This gave and gives strength to go forward and not stop. I was very lucky that none of my parents ever insisted on something specific and I could decide my own destiny. Until now, sometimes I hear questions: they say, how can such a fragile little girl do such sports, while athletes must be big and strong.

- What do you usually answer in this case?

- I believe that the main strength is not physical , but the one inside me. Sport is sport, it cannot be male or female, for big or small. I have never been offended by the opinions of people, no matter who says anything, I just want to show others that they sometimes make mistakes and what we see from the outside does not always give us a complete understanding of the picture.

- Have there been moments in your career when you thought about why you chose professional sports? Were there any hard times?

- Unfortunately, sooner or later, everyone experiences a turning point, when you think if it's yours, why something is going wrong and what to do next, but I in any case pull myself together. And I just move on, work and get better. In 2014 I usedthere was an open hand fracture, this is a very serious injury and not the easiest moment in his career. And then right before the Olympic Games I got another injury and could not qualify.

- How do you feel now?

- I recovered pretty quickly, now everything is fine, ready to conquer new heights with renewed vigor.

- Tell us how you spend your free time?

- Sports occupy 90 percent of my life, so I practically have no free time. When I have a minute, I really want to spend this time with my family and friends, just take a walk in nature, read, lie in bed - sometimes I really miss this. But I love BMX endlessly and am happy that I do what I love.

- What's next? Do you already have any plans for the future?

- I do not look into the future and try not to make plans, but I can say that my further professional destiny largely depends on how I finish career. I don't think about my own family and children yet. But I know for sure that I want my child to be associated with sports, because sports builds character and makes us stronger. Maybe not BMX, maybe rhythmic gymnastics ... In any case, these are still only distant prospects. And I will perform as long as I spin, as long as I want. Everything always depends only on you and on your desire.

At the end of our interview, we decided to arrange a small blitz and suggested Natasha to continue the quotes of a typical girl who found on the Internet, perhaps many of them will play for you from a different angle.

Nobody notices, how she cries at night ... who always laughs (original: the one who goes through life laughing)

It's hard to find me ... And it's true. I am very hard to find anywhere (original: easy to lose and impossible to forget).

No thought is worth ... destroying your self-confidence (original : to think about it).

When a person says he doesn't want to remember something ... he thinks about it constantly (original: he thinks about it constantly).

You will surprise me if ... you say you don't know what BMX is (original: if you write hello first).

Thank you for organizing and filming the world's best dress rental service Oh My Look, which every girl and the G-Bar beauty corner dreams of visiting.
