Israeli Team Wins Gold at World Acrobatics Championships

According to a press release, the Israeli team won gold at the World Acrobatics Championships currently taking place in Geneva.

Michal Stratievsky, Yarden Ron, and Tamar Stoller received a score of 28.450 points, beating out trios from Russian and Portugal to take first place. The athletes are all between the ages of 13 and 20 years old.

Besides participating in international competitions, the Israeli team also represents their local acrobatics club Hapoel Begin Holon, having won the Union Cup for their age category in the past year.

The win by the Israeli team comes as other Israeli athletes continue to score high in gymnastics competitions. In June, rhythmic gymnast Linoy Ashram won gold at the European championships, paving her way to the upcoming Tokyo Olympic games. (JPost / VFI News)
