Current status


Ekaterina Vladimirovna Kurbatova (Russian: Екатери́на Влади́мировна Курба́това) is a retired Russian gymnast.


She competed in the 2009 Glasgow Grand Prix in May winning Vault and placing 3rd on Uneven Bars.

She also went to the world championships that year in London where she qualified for the all-around and placed 9th on uneven bars behind Italy's Serena Lichetta. In the all-around competition she fell on Balance Beam taking her out of the medals.

In 2010, she competed at the European Championships where she won the gold medal with her team and on vault. At the 2010 Moscow World Cup, she made both vault and floor finals, and finished on 4th and 1st respectively.

She's remarkable for her unique style: a 'kick-in' on vault, messy execution, but very efficient, interesting choreography on floor exercise, which wasn't always well performed, and a very compact and, again, efficient composition on uneven bars (have performed once a very complex combination of Pak salto into a Khorkina II transition).

She retired sometime after Rotterdam, and has since become a coach.[1]
