Israel’s Olympic Committee Yael Arad described the victory as a, “distilled moment of supreme happiness behind which there are so many pit stops and thousands of hours of training.” Arad was the first Israeli to win an Olympic medal when she took home the Silver medal at the 1992 Barcelona games.

The People’s Republic of China took the silver with 70.050 points. Spain claimed the bronze medal with a total of 68.600 points.

Rhythmic gymnastics is a sport that combines elements of gymnastics, dance, and calisthenics. It is performed on a floor with an apparatus: hoop, ball, clubs, ribbon, and rope.

Gymnasts must be strong, flexible, agile, dexterous, and coordinated to perform the various movements and tricks with the apparatus. They must also be able to express themselves creatively through their movements and interpret the music in their routine.

Rhythmic gymnastics is a challenging sport that requires a lot of dedication and hard work. However, it is also a very rewarding sport that can help gymnasts develop their physical and mental strength, as well as their artistic and expressive abilities.

Rhythmic gymnastics is a great way for children and adolescents to stay active, improve their physical and mental health, and develop their artistic and expressive abilities. If you are interested in getting your child involved in rhythmic gymnastics, I encourage you to find a local gym or club that offers classes.
