Makar: hero of Kalmykia!

Well, as I hinted, Makar ended up having a good reason for missing her beloved Ul's birthday party.  She went to her hometown (Elista) and received an award!
As she explains:
Hero of Kalmykia - the highest degree of excellence, the award of the Republic of Kalmykia - title granted for services to Kalmykia associated with making a heroic feat of labor heroism and outstanding contribution to the prosperity of Kalmykia. I want to thank you for this award R.K Orlov AM, mom, coaches and those who were involved! It's priceless!
And here is Makar shaking hands with the head of Kalmykia, Alexey Orlov.
The girls from her gymnastics club went nuts when she arrived...
...and they were so excited when she taught a master class.

I hope this encourages the badass brat to get her act together and get back into training!


  1. I thought "Labor heroism" was when you gave four babies to the fatherland. I can't think why, as you can't make a rhythmic group out of four. This is probably why Hitler was no good at 10 clubs. I told him to turn his panzers north to capture Vinerstan but he kept banging on about Aryan "Turnen" instead. The rest, as they say, is history.

    1. Ah, that is not true, rhythmicof! You CAN make a rhythmic group out of 4--that is what happened when Makar, Ksyu, Karolina & Olga won the Youth Olympic Games in 2010!
