(TPS) – The Israeli gymnastics team won gold at the European Rhythmic Gymnastics Championship on Sunday in the clubs and hoop event and also won silver in the ribbons event.This year’s European championship was held in the team’s own home court of Holon, a coastal Israeli city.
“I felt extreme exhilaration, especially since this is the first European championship ever held in Israel. Over the years I learned a lot, the most important thing being: ‘Just be yourself! Hard work pays off and you will eventually achieve outstanding results,” said Israeli gymnast Tori Filanovsky.
