The article is called "Russian's Game A Thing Of Beauty". :) This is one of the most detailed and informative article I've ever read on Masha. :D The article is located at http://mariaworld.net/art13104.htm

Thanks Cat.
I tried to add reputation points to you, but it said I had to "spread some Reputation around before giving it to the cat again."

Your welcome, Cassius. :)

Adding reputation points can be difficult. :( Most of the time I run into the same problems you do. For instance, I've tried to rep Goldenlox many times. But I've only been able to do so on rare occasions. And I can't figure out why.:confused:

As far as Maria's article goes, one of the most important points of the article is that she has a Russian personal trainer who will take Maria to the next level physically. :D

I talked with Masha's Russian trainer for a while. He was very friendly, and he is also from Sochi. His English isn't good yet, so I talked to him in Russian. Or sometimes he spoke to me in Russian, and I replied to him in both English and Russian.

MSF, thanks for your letting us know about your Hong Kong experience with Maria's personal trainer. Is Maria's personal trainer in good shape? ;)

I didn't know you spoke Russian. Did you teach yourself to speak Russian or did you take a course?

I went to a university in Moscow for 4 years. And before studying at the university, I learnt Russian language for a year.

MSF, I had no idea you were so well eductated and so well spoken. Well done. :) Maybe you could become a tennis coach and coach one of the Russina's. ;)
