Qualcosa in più su di lei… (from WIKIPEDIA)
Natalia started gymnastics training in 1983, taking 2nd place in the national championship in 1993 and 1995.
She made first international appearance at the 1995 tournament in Corbeil-Essonnes, ranking 7th and earning a gold medal at the 1995 World championship in Vienna for the team event. In 1996 Lipkovskaya won an international tournament in Portugal and a bronze in one event at the European championship, but missed the 1996 Summer Olympics in favor of higher-ranking teammates.
In 1997, following the injury of Amina Zaripova, Lipkovskaya took the lead of Russian national team at the 1997 World championship in Berlin, scoring two gold, three silver and one bronze medal, and ranking second after the winner Elena Vitrichenko. She retired due to recurring injuries in 1998.
