The Israeli team has won gold at the European Rhythmic Gymnastics Championship this week, with Israel’s Linoy Ashram winning the individual gold as well, showing Israel’s growing strength in the sport.

The competition took place in Kyiv with Ashram narrowly defeating her Belarussian competitor Alina Harnasko to take home the all-around title, with a total score of 100.9.

Her victory came two days after Israel’s rhythmic gymnastics team took the gold in the group all-around category. The category included performances using hoops, clubs and balls.

The members of the Israeli team are Yuliana Telegin, Yana Kramarenko, Ofir Dayan, Shai Ben Ruby, Bar Shapochnikov and Karin Vexman. The coach is Ira Vigdorchik.

Rhythmic gymnastics is one of Israel’s stronger sports. Ashram has won numerous medals in recent years and is seen as one of the country’s leading hopes in the Olympic Games in Tokyo, delayed from 2020 to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
