Israeli gymnast wins gold at European Championships, alongside 3 more medals

Israeli rhythmic gymnast Linoy Ashram scores a slew of medals within a few hours, winning a gold, two silvers, and a bronze at the European Championships in Rhythmic Gymnastics held in Varna, Bulgaria.

Linoy takes the gold in the clubs exercise with a top score of 28.500 points, wins silvers in the ball and hoop exercises — and a bronze alongside the rest of the Israeli team in the overall group competition.

In the ribbon exercise, Linoy finished fourth.

The Israeli team is to compete later in the day in group events with two routines, one with balls and another with both hoops and clubs.
