She IS training. She is working at her home-gym, already doing all 4 events, but all “soft landings”. She’s even been already doing triple twist, but on a soft…idk how it’s called like acrobatic mat? She has all her beam skills back, but some she can only do on a small beam (closer to floor), and some on a big beam. She is planning to be back by Voronin cup at December, but it’s not certain, though she has plans to compete there. She is training almost every day, she has half-day trainings (9:00-14:00) bcz when she does more, it’s still little but painful for her leg. She told me that firstly they only wanted to train bars and beam and it seemed difficult bcz all her beam landings are like…on her left leg which was hurt. But then, when they started her recovering program it turned out to be successful - they decided to train all 4 events. She told me that she really wants to have her AA back so much, it’s such a desire!
Thank you Dolly!! I was wondering about her the other day. :-D
Her brother bought a bicycle to take her but it broke sometimes.
Her mother had to borrow money to buy food and there was no money left for anything else, the clothes she had were donated by people who knew her. The gym she went was a public one and the breakfast that was left was donated to her family.
Her coach, Keli Kitaura, knew that Rebecca had talent so she asked her mother if she (Rebecca) could live with her, so she wouldn’t miss practices anymore. They lived together for some time, but Keli had to move to Curitiba, a city far away from where they were living.
When she was settled in, Rebecca moved there and after some time Keli was hired by Flamengo (where Jade, the Hypolitos and a huge part of brazilian team go) and they both moved again. Now she and other 9 girls live with Keli and her husband.
She also has a contract with a telecommunications company and a salary of Flamengo, the brazilian team and bolsa atleta, a government assistance to athletes. With that money she helps her mother that doesn’t have any more depts and her 3 siblings are also doing gymnastics.
