RUSSIA'S LITTLE MAGPIE.......





Did you know that Magpies love to collect bright, shiny things to adorn their nests? I am sure there is some greater biological, evolutionary reason for this, other to make their humble abodes look all glowy and attractive, but that is beside the point.

Did you know the gymnastics world has its very own little magpies? And that magpie comes in the form of the recently retired Yelena Zamolodchikova?

It started with little things......



Neon scrunchees and shimmery eyeshadow....





A bright warm up jacket to offset the dark leg warmers....

and of course....





medals....


but then there was the....




the sequinned event final leotard...

which of course led to....



metallic printed leos...


Then her addiction started to get serious, finding its way out of the gym........



to strappy silver accessories...





The glittery blazer....



and the puffy silver jacket......

but her team mates only really started to worry when she pulled out.....



the shiny leather pants!
