I´m doing aerobic on a very low level compared to what the elite shows us at competitions. As artistic, rhythmic and acrobatic gymnastics, aerobic gymnastics belongs to the FIG.
Here is Marcela Lopez (BRA) at the Suzuki World Cup last year, where she easily won. She is the 2006 and 2008 World Champion.
She has such a positive and energetic attitude, I like how she always smiles during the routine !

The FIG published an interesting interview with Marcela on her profile site.
What is your background in sport? Did you begin your career in gymnastics or in another sport?
I started with classical ballet at the age of 4; one year later, I moved to rhythmic dance and jazz dance. Overall, I had about 12 years of classical ballet, 5 years of rhythmic dance as well as 8 years of jazz dance. I began to explore aerobics for the first time at the age of 10. As you well know, aerobics is just a step away from capoeira, our national sport that I have now been practicing for 8 years. Still today, I am very fond of all these disciplines.
