Tatiana Olegovna Nabieva (Russian: Татьяна Олеговна Набиева; born November 21, 1994) is a Russian artistic gymnast who has won four World Championship medals.

Personal life[edit]

Nabieva was born in Pushkin on November 21, 1994.[1]



Nabieva competed at the 2008 European Junior Championships, earning gold medals in the team competition and floor exercise. She earned a silver medal on balance beam, vault and uneven bars. Although no all-around championships were held, Nabieva held the highest all-around score in the qualifying competition, ahead of teammate Aliya Mustafina.[2]

2009–2010: Senior debut[edit]

Nabieva competed at the 2009 and 2010 Russian Championships. In 2009 she competed in the all-around, finishing in third place.[3] In 2010 she competed only on vault and uneven bars due to an injury, earning a bronze and a gold medal, respectively.[4]

At the 2010 Japan Cup, she introduced a toe-on laid out Tkachev (piked solo circle backwards with a counter stretched hecht (layout position over high bar) to catch) on the uneven bars.

Nabieva won gold with her team at the 2010 World Championships, despite falling on the uneven bars in the team final. It was at these world championships where her unique skill of a toe-on laid out Tkachev was officially named after her.[5] Nabieva also qualified for the all-around final, but multiple errors left her in seventh place.


Nabieva performed consistently at the 2011 World Championships in Tokyo, helping her team win the silver medal by contributing on the uneven bars and vault. Despite not performing her unique skills on the uneven bars, she qualified for the event finals and won the silver medal behind teammate Viktoria Komova.[6] She also placed sixth in the vault final with a double twisting Yurchenko and a Yurchenko half on pike half off.[7]


In 2012, Nabieva struggled with back injuries. She was included as an alternate in Russia's team to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.


In March 2013, Nabieva placed second at the Russian National Championships on uneven bars, behind Anastasia Grishina.

In July 2013, Nabieva returned to international competition at the 2013 Summer Universiade in Kazan together with teammates Aliya Mustafina, Ksenia Afanasyeva, Maria Paseka and Anna Dementyeva. She contributed scores of 14.850 in vault, 14.400 in uneven bars, 13.750 in beam and 13.050 in floor toward the Russian team's first-place finish. She missed qualifying for the all-around final, with Afanasyeva placing ahead of her in qualifications. At the uneven bars finals, Nabieva won the silver medal behind Mustafina. She won gold at the 2013 Russian Cup in all-around and event finals in uneven bars and vault.

In late 2013, Nabieva announced her retirement via social media after a win at a small French meet. Nabieva said, "I want to be a coach. That's my dream, since the very moment I started gymnastics. My dream is to train children and participate with them in the most serious competitions."[8]


Nabieva was persuaded to come out of retirement to compete at the 2014 World Championships. She contributed a score of 14.933 in vault and helped the Russian team win the bronze medal.
