Alina Maratovna Kabayeva (Russian: Али́на Мара́товна Каба́ева; Tatar: Älinä Marat qızı Qabayeva; born May 12, 1983 ) is a Russian sportsmaster and politician. She is currently a State Duma deputy from the Party of United Russia since 2007, and before was known to lead a sports-related career in rhythmic gymnastics.
Kabayeva is Russia’s most successful rhythmic gymnast to date, and is also one of the most decorated gymnasts in the history of rhythmic gymnastics with two Olympic medals, 18 world championship medals and 25 European championship medals. Since 2007, Kabayeva has been a member of the Russian parliament, the State Duma, representing the pro-Kremlin United Russia party.
In mid-April 2008 the Russian paper Moskovsky Korrespondent stated that she was engaged to marry the Russian President Vladimir Putin in mid-June, after he left office. It sourced the news to a St. Petersburg based planner bidding to conduct the wedding reception. On April 18, 2008 Putin addressed the article in a press conference with Silvio Berlusconi, saying, “There is not a single word of truth” in it. While Putin had been abroad and unavailable for comment, Kabayeva’s spokeswoman had already refused to discuss “this nonsense” and said that Putin is not a pedophile
The gymnast is one of the young and beautiful Russian dancers and athletes who, under Putin’s patronage, have lately become deputies in the Duma- Russia’s lower parliament. Aged only 15, she won the gold medal in the 1998 European Championships. The following year she secured the world title and was favourite to repeat the success at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Disaster struck, however, when she dropped her hoop and it rolled off the carpet. She went home with only a bronze and all of Russia wept with her.
It is said that this was when she first came to Putin’s attention and made his acquaintance. But rumours about the state of Putin’s marriage have been rife for some time in Moscow media circles.
The story that Ludmilla and the President have already, in fact, divorced appeared in the Moscow tabloid Moscovski Korrespondent, reports the Daily Mail. The newspaper claimed that the secret divorce came through in February and that Putin will marry the gymnast-turned-MP in St Petersburg on June 15. The article cited a source close to an event planning company saying the firm was competing for the right to host the wedding at an imperial palace on this date.
