Bulgaria Wins Gold at Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championship
The Bulgarian rhythmic gymnastics team won the gold medal at the AA competition of the 33rd Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships in Izmir, Turkey.
A breathtaking performance of two routines brought a total of 34 449 points to Reneta Kamberova, Mihaela Maevska-Velichkova, Tsvetelina Naydenova, Tsvetelina Stoyanova, Hristiyana Todorova.
With a total of 34 449 points, Bulgaria thus managed to oust Italy, a traditional winner over the last years, which ranked second.
Belarus took the bronze, and Russia came fourth after having a clear lead, and sinking down in the final chart after a flawed performance with clubs.
This is Bulgaria's first gold medal in the all-around phase of a world championship since 1996.
