Does Zetlin Have Rhythm?
While our country is celebrating the U.S. women’s gymnastics team’s first place win in the team competition, there’s an entirely different gymnastics competition happening this week that most people will never watch. That competition is the women’s rhythmic gymnastics.
A dance-driven form of gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics involves individuals or teams performing a routine while manipulating an apparatus (e.g. hoops, ribbons, ropes). The sport will host its individual all-around qualification rounds at the Olympics this week, and Jewish gymnast Julie Zetlin is set to put this obscure sport in the spotlight!
Although Zetlin is the (lesser-known) sixth member of the U.S. women’s team, she has qualified as a soloist and will be the only U.S. gymnast involved in rhythmic competition. Does she have what it takes to win gold? See for yourself BleacherReport.com!
