Longines is proud to welcome Arina and Dina Averina as its new Ambassadors of Elegance

Saint-Imier (Switzerland), 14 November 2017 – Longines is delighted to announce the appointment of rhythmic gymnasts Arina and Dina Averina as its new Ambassadors of Elegance. Since 2014 when they first entered World Cup competitions, the Russian sisters have set themselves apart and claimed many medals. These talented and elegant young athletes perfectly embody Longines’ motto “Elegance is an Attitude”.

 

Russian rhythmic gymnasts Arina and Dina Averina were welcomed as members of the Longines family of Ambassadors of Elegance. Born on August 13, 1998, the twin sisters discovered the world of gymnastics at the age of four thanks to their mother. Arina and Dina 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 2015 Corbeil-Essonnes International Rhythmic Gymnastics Tournament, the 2015 MTK Budapest, the 2016 International tournament in Lisbon and 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 who took the silver medal.

 

Dina and Arina Averina are in total symbiosis with Longines’ values in terms of performance and elegance. From the beginning of their career in the world of gymnastics competition, the two sisters have shown their talent in achieving great results. Longines is committed to supporting the most talented young athletes of their generation and is looking forward to 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).

Longines’ passion for equestrian sport dates back to 1878, when it produced a chronograph engraved with a jockey and his mount. Three years later, it can be found on American racecourses, adopted by horse enthusia­sts. In 1912, the company partnered for the first time with an international show jumping competition. Today Longines’ involvement in equestrian sports includes show-jumping, flat racing, endurance, driving, dressage and eventing competitions.
