About Us


Olga Halkina :: Club Owner and Founder :: Gymnastics Instructor


Olga is originally from Rostov-on-Don, Russia.  She graduated from BYU, majoring in Business Management and Finance.  Olga enjoyed artistic gymnastics as a child from 10 to 15 years old, and time spent in gymnastics was the best time of her life.  She currently promotes the most beautiful Olympic sport for girls – Rhythmic Gymnastics in Denver, Colorado, and assists our Head Coach and other coaches in teaching Rhythmic gymnastics and acro classes at Mile-High Stars Athletics.

Zarina Izrailbekova :: MHSA HEAD COACH 


Zarina is originally from Tashkent, Uzbekistan, has 20 years of combined experience as an athlete and as a coach.  Zarina is a very talented and ambitious gymnastics and fitness coach, and she holds a title of The Honorary Coach of Uzbekistan, issued by the president of her native country (currently only 6 rhythmic gymnastics coaches from her country have this title); she is the only one such high level Rhythmic Gymnastics coach in the state of Colorado.

Before joining Mile-High Stars Athletics she worked as a coach at The School of Olympic Reserves in Tashkent, for the Gymnastics Federation of Uzbekistan.  Zarina coached 2 Olympic groups: juniors and seniors.  She took the junior group to the 1st place in the 13th Junior Asian Championships in 2013, which secured their spot in the Junior Olympics in Nanjing, China in 2014.  In 2015 Zarina worked with the senior group, which came into the top 10 in the world during the World Championships in Stuttgart (for the first time in history of Uzbekistan), which qualified the team for Rio Olympics 2016.  Most importantly, she is not just an amazing coach, but is also a great person with strong personal values and character.  We are very happy to have Zarina on our team.
