Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have glowing skin and gorgeous hair. Do you take some kind of skin treatment to keep it young and glowing and secondly, what do you do to your hair to make it look so stunning?
Ms. Marta Pagnini: Skin and hair care is very important for me. In our case for example hair is very stressed, because we always have it tied back during the whole day and for many days and the risk to damage it is very easy. To bound the damages I try to let my hair down as long as I can when I am not in gym and I often let my hair have a specific hair mask .
Also the skin, because of the sweat and the contact with the board, it is exposed to dust and dirt. For this reason it is important to clean it every morning and every evening and take a little scrub not less then twice a week by using pharmaceutical products.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Advice and motivational words to the inspiring and budding rhythmic gymnastics girls who all are your fans, they shall like to know from you, what they should do for their climb to ladder of success in field of rhythmic gymnastics ?
Ms. Marta Pagnini: The advice that I feel to give to the young gymnasts is to never give up in front of the difficulties. The thing that often stops the young gymnasts along their way is the hardness of difficult moments and if you don’t have the right determination to react against a defeat you risk missing the train and to be frustrated for the whole of your life.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: How did you feel before and after winning bronze medal at Olympics in London 2012 ?
Ms. Marta Pagnini: Taking part in the Olympic games is for sure the dream of each athlete. For this reason when I realised that I would have crowned it , I felt the happiest person in the World! Of course, after the first euphoria I felt the very great weight of the responsibility, but this feeling didn’t cause me the stress but also being proud and that the great will to do.
Once I had won the so coveted medal I felt the desire to thank all the people that have stayed by me also because my motto says that happiness is not a real one if you can’t share it!
Ms. Namita Nayyar: On 11 April 2014, you were conferred the honor of “Knight of Merit of the Italian Republic”. Tell us your feelings, experience and the responsibilities on receiving this honor?
Ms. Marta Pagnini: Becoming an Italian Republic (cavaliere) was one of the most beautiful experience that this sport presented to me, for sure a unique honour and another reward from the Italian State after the “collare d’oro”, it was a great joy. It’s right that who practices sport with a so big devotion could be appreciated on a national level.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Who has been your greatest influencer and motivator in your success in the field of your career in competitive rhythmic gymnastics ?
Ms. Marta Pagnini: I can’t mention any one person whom I have to thank to for his or her support in my sportive career…there have been different people that, at the right time, gave me the force and encouragement to go on. At the beginning, sure as hell, were my grandparents that every day, patiently, took me to the gym and gave me important advice for my personal life.
My parents too have always found the right way to teach me how to face the positive and negative situations that I met on the way. At the end, but not as last, my trainer and my closest friends.
