Longines Arina and Dina Averina Ambassadors of Elegance
The Russian rhythmic gymnasts are the new Longines Ambassadors of Elegance.
Born on August 13, 1998, the twin sisters Arina and Dina Averina discovered the world of gymnastics at the age of four thanks to their mother. They first appeared in international competitions at the 2011 Russian-Chinese Youth Games where Dina won the gold medal and Arina earned 5th place in the all-around competition. After that, the two gymnasts competed in several tournaments, including the 2016 Grand Prix Final in Eilat, where they obtained outstanding results and brought home numerous medals. The twin gymnasts also claimed several medals at the 2017 World Games in Wrocław and at the 35th Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships in Pesaro. Longines was the Official Partner and Timekeeper of this world-class event, where Dina became the new All-around Champion followed by her sister Arina.
Dina and Arina Averina are in total symbiosis with Longines’ values in terms of performance and elegance. Longines is committed to supporting the most talented young athletes of their generation and will follow the very promising career of these two gymnasts.
More generally, Longines first became involved in gymnastics in 1912, when it launched an innovative electro-mechanical timing system. For over twenty-five years, the brand has been the Official Partner and the Official Timekeeper for artistic and rhythmic gymnastics competitions organized by the International Federation of Gymnastics (FIG).
