Pronunciation Database

Always wondered how to pronounce names of foreign gymnasts correctly? Can’t figure out if it’s KhorkIna or KhOrkina? We’ve got you covered!

This database contains audiofiles with the pronunciations of gymnasts’ names. The database building is still in process and, currently, it only has names of the gymnasts from Russia and of Russian origin.

The gymnasts are listed under the country they last competed for (so, Anna Pavlova is listed under Azerbaijan and Oksana Chusovitina – under Uzbekistan). The spelling of the names of the current gymnasts is according to the FIG registration.

If you’re looking for a specific gymnasts and her/his name isn’t here, or if you want to help us updating the database, please leave a comment or fill the contact form at the end of the page.
