Meet Almudena Cid, Spanish individual rhythmic gymnast who will be making her fourth Olympics appearance this year in Beijing. See photos, video and her biography here.
Almudena is the oldest rhythmic gymnast to compete this year. Despite that, she’s going pretty well. Apart from her majestic performances in the arena, Cid also holds numerous contracts with Nike and Love Store.
Almudena Cid was born on June 15, 1980 in Vitoria, Spain so her age is 28. Having started gymnastics from the age of six, she has been a part of the national team since 1994. Her measurements are 32-26-30.
While Almudena is not a favorite this time, she has had a good time during the training after posing for the August issue of Spain’s FHM. You can see her photo-spread here.
Her boyfriend is Christian Galvez, a poplar Spanish game show host.
Almudena is said said to be one of the only Western European gymnasts to be taken seriously against those from the Eastern Europe.
