Some special fans -- the families of U.S. military families -- cheered on USA Gymnasts at the World Cup in Stuttgart. Thank you!
Here is the USA Gymnastics story about the girls' visit.
Bernd Thierolf, well known around the world for his beautiful photos of rhythmic gymnastics, captured the USA Senior National Group at the World Cup in Stuttgart, Germany. Enjoy!
The USA just won eight medals at the 2010 Pan American Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico -- and North Shore Rhythmics gymnasts made several of those trips to the podium.
Over the first weekend in December, the U.S. group -- which trains at North Shore Rhythmics -- won silver medals for its five-hoop and three ribbons-and-two-hoops routines. (Group members include Jessica Bogdanov, Megan Frohlich, Michelle Przybylo, Sofya Roytburg, and Sydney Sachs.) And Shelby Kisiel, also with North Shore Rhythmics, won fourth all around and silver in ribbon.
This competition marks the first time in 15 years that the U.S. group made it to the Pan American Games.
Congratulations to the girls and the North Shore Rhythmics coaches!
