Darya Klishina Дарья Клишина: The Next Big Track & Field Star

I stumbled upon a new Darya Klishina Дарья Клишина clip from Youtube last night. In the video, Darya is seen modeling and training (doing hurdle drills, plyometrics and jumping workouts!). She’s as comfortable on the track as she is in front of the camera. It’s just a pity someone hasn’t uploaded English subs yet, since the interview is in Russian! Or maybe I should just learn Russian.
