It is a sport that combines, ballet, gymnastics, dance, and handling of an apparatus. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Long and gruesome hours at the gym.
A lot of physical abilities are needed to be a rhythmic gymnast. Strength, power, flexibility, dexterity, and endurance are key.
Alexandra is a four-time medalist at the 2016 European Junior Championships.
At the national level, she is a two-time Italian National All-around silver medalist and a three-time Italian Junior National Champion, and bronze medalist with the ball at the 2018 World Championships.
The victor is the gymnast who earns the most points, which is determined by a panel of judges. They are looking for leaps, balances, pirouettes or pivots, apparatus handling, and execution.
The choreography must cover the entire floor and contain a balance of carefully executed jumps, leaps, and pivots with great balance and flexibility.
Each movement takes a lot of strength and skill. Here is a beautiful performance by Alexandra Ana Maria Agiurguiculese. She placed bronze in this wonderful performance!
