stubborn character, persistence, willpower.
Alexei Nemov has achieved many sports successes.
3. BIOGRAPHY ALEXEY NEMOVAAlexey Nemov was born on May 28,
1976 in the Mordovian village of
Barashevo. Alexei's childhood can not
be called easy - mother raised her son
alone, and therefore often faced with
various difficulties. Soon the family
moved to Togliatti. Alexei was not
even five years old when his mother
first brought him to a sports school; but
Lyosha was not taken there - did not fit
4. SPORTS CAREER ALEXEY NEMOV1989 brought Alexei the first victory at the championship of the USSR
youth. Since then, almost every year, he has conquered new
heights. In 1990, Nemov won in several kinds of all-around in the
Youth Spartakiada. In the period from 1990 to 1993 Alexey Nemov
constantly participated in international competitions and
repeatedly became the first prize in his programs, and even the
absolute winner of the competition.
title of four-time champion of the Goodwill Games (St. Petersburg). The European Championships, held in
Italy in the same year, brought Alexei three gold and one silver. Participation in the XXVI Olympic
Games, held in Atlanta, was crowned with a stunning success: Alexey was awarded the title of two-time
Olympic champion and was awarded two gold, one silver and three bronze medals. World Cup
(Switzerland, 1997) ended for Alexei gold medal.
In 2000, Nemov received the World Cup, and also became a prize-winner of the world championships
and Europe. He again takes part in the Olympic Games, which took place this time in Sydney. And again

bronze, one silver and two gold medals.
unfortunately, was overshadowed by a serious scandal. Then, in
2004, Alexei came to the games in the rank of the leader of the
Russian team. Traumatized before the match, but while remaining
an obvious favorite, Nemov demonstrated a high performance
class and the complexity of the program. The performance of the
gymnast on the crossbeam included difficult elements, including
one of Ginger's flights (a backward flip backwards with turns) and
a bundle of three Tkachev flights (swinging forward with a
counter-movement back without flips). But, despite the incredible
complexity of Alexei's speech, the judging estimates were clearly
understated (9,725 on average).
The public, indignant at this behavior of refereeing, standing
supported Nemov with applause. At the same time, expressing
disagreement with the decision of the judges with unceasing
whistles, screams and roar, the auditorium for 15 minutes did not
allow the next gymnast to perform his program. For the first time in
the history of gymnastics, the scores were changed (to an
average of 9,762), which still deprived Alexei of the medal. The
spectators stopped protesting only after Nemov's personal request
to calm down. After this conflict, the jury was partially changed,
and the gymnast received an official apology. Also, rules were
amended: in addition to evaluating techniques, a complexity
assessment was introduced that takes into account the links
between complex elements and each element individually. This
conflict is an unprecedented event in the history of sports.
