New (Rhythmic) Blood

The Schmiden International 2010 is a well-known rhythmic gymnastics competition held at the national training centre in Fellbach-Schmiden (GER), 6-7 March. It’s especially well-known for the juniors competition. As usual the leading countries in rhythmic gymnastics – Russia, Belarus, the Ukraine – as well as Israel, France, Poland, the USA among others and of course Germany send some of their best newcomers.

Daria Svatkovskaya‘s (RUS) routine with the clubs – gold medal winner (AA & every EF) – and Jana Berezko-Marggrander‘s (GER) ball routine – silver medal winner (AA) – caught my eye: Fantastic music choice, excellent choreography, incredible interpretation, good execution and already a lot of difficulty. Enjoy!

Jana just qualified for the YOG in Singapore. Daria didn’t compete at the Europeans – yes the Russians still produce more rhythmic gymnasts than they need :-).

Results: Juniors (AA) Juniors (EF) / Groups (Yes, Germany won over Russia. The Russian group had a really big knot in their ribbons/ropes…)
