Rodina Elite Gymnastics Academy is owned by wife and husband Yulia Rodina and Eduard Rizvanov.
Both originally from Russia, moved to Hawaii in 2006 and taught the Junior Olympic and Elite Programs.
During that time they trained Randi Lau who placed first in the all-around with a 57.15 at the Texas Dreams Elite Qualifier. A few weeks later, she finished eighth in the all-around as well as fifth on balance beam at the 2008 VISA Championships in Boston, MA.
She, along top 12 juniors, made the Junior US National Team. Randi just transferred to Penn State University from LSU, and will be competing as a Nittany Lion in the 2014 Season on a full ride scholarship. In 2010 Yulia and Eduard moved to Idaho to work for Danik Gymnastics and again prepared athletes that made it to the National Tops Team.
