As a biography, Anna Bessonova was born on July 29, 1984 in Kiev. Her father, Vladimir Bessonov, is a former Dynamo Kiev football player and her mother, Viktoria Bessonova, is a former two time world champion group rhythmic gymnast.
Anna started gymnastics when she was 5 years old and entered her first international competition at age 10. Anna won her very first World gold medal in 2002, when she was a member of the Ukrainian Group and performed her ribbon routine. That same year, she won first place for Hoop, Rope and Clubs.
She competed in the 2004 Athens Olympics and received a bronze medal. Anna won the all around gold medal in the 2007 World Rhythmic Gymnastics Championship in Greece. She will no doubt shine during the Beijing Summer Olympics.
