New Delhi: Alina Kabayeva is rumoured to be Russian president Vladimir Putin's mistress for years.
She is one of Russia's most successful rhythmic gymnasts.
She took part in six world championships and brought home an Olympic Gold medal in 2004 but it is her alleged relationship with Mr. Putin for which she is most known today,
Rumours about Putin's alleged affair with Kabayeva first surfaced five years ago when a Russian newspaper owned by the oligarch Alexander Lebedev reported that
Putin wanted to marry his gymnast mistress.
Putin angrily denied the story, and the newspaper was closed down shortly afterwards, which many attributed to Putin's rage. Further stories later emerged claiming that Kabayeva had had a baby by the president, but both sides denied the reports.
Alina Kabaeva was born on May 12th, 1983 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Russia to Lyubov Kabaeva a Russian basketball player and Marat Kabaev, an ethnic Tatar, was a professional footballer with the team Pahtakor. Alina has one younger sister named Lisana.
Alina's road into gymnastics began when she was just a 3-year-old girl, her mother wanted for her to b involved in ice skating or rhythmic gymnastics, eventually she settled on Gymnastic under the training of coaches Anelia Malkina and Lyudmila Nikitina.
When Alina was 12, her mother decided that for her daughter to become a better gymnast it was necessary to look for a better training in Moscow, so they looked for Irina Viner – the chief coach of Russia in Rhythmic Gymnastics where Alina began her training for better heights.
After she retired in 2004, she was recruited by the ruling pro-Kremlin United Russia party and soon joined several other former Olympic champions in the ranks of the State Duma, Russia's lower house of parliament.
