Israelis continued their streak of successes at the rhythmic gymnastics 2022 European Championships on Sunday in the individual apparatus contests, snagging four silver medals and a bronze.
All-around gold medalist Daria Atamanov, 16, continued her strong performance in the Tel Aviv competition by winning silver medals in three apparatuses — the hoop, the clubs and the ribbon.
Saturday saw Atamanov take the gold in the all-around category in the Tel Aviv competition, defeating her Bulgarian competitor Boryana Kaleyn with a total score of 136.900.
Meanwhile, Israel’s Adi Katz took the bronze in the ribbon, with the national team getting another silver medal in the hoop event, after winning a gold the previous day in the group all-around category.
Rhythmic gymnastics is one of Israel’s stronger sports.
Atamanov has won several medals in recent years, and is seen as a potential successor to Linoy Ashram, who recently retired after bringing home a gold medal from the Tokyo Olympics last year.
Ashram now serves on the coaching staff for Israel’s gymnastics team, and was present during Saturday’s competition, according to Channel 12 news.
