Tamara Shatirova - a well-known circus performer, gymnast, trainer, and director of the Moscow circus Raduga - has died in Moscow at the age of 68.

"I had to perform in a variety of stadiums. Sometimes, when equipment was being fixed under the ceiling, I prayed so that it would not fall. And once my trapeze was hung up on a gibbet of the building crane", - Tamara Shatirova shared in the interviews.

After her trauma in 1970 Tamara Shatirova shifted into animal training and became the world’s first trainer of hamadryads.
