Rhythmic Gymnastics

I started gymnastics about four years ago. You are probably thinking of artistic gymnastics where people do flick flacks and walkovers on high beams, but that’s not the kind of gymnastics I do. I do rhythmic gymnastics, we dance with hand apparatus like clubs, ribbon, rope, hoop, ball and free dance which is when you dance without a hand apparatus. In my second and third year doing gymnastics I competed in the Western Province Champs and won gold at both. Last year I also qualified to represent Western Province at the South African Champs and won a bronze medal in ball and the bronze medal for overall score. This year I am unable to compete because I am going to the Olympics!
