American Rhythmic Star Julie Zetlin Places Sixth with Ribbon at the World Cup

Last year, twenty-year-old Julie Zetlin became the first American to make the all-around finals at the Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships. This year, at the first 2011 World Cup event, Julie placed 8th with clubs and ball, and 6th with ribbon, performing what was, in my opinion, a world class ribbon routine.

For her clubs routine, on the other hand, Julie wore the most colorful leotard I ever saw; it really had more colors than the rainbow ;-):

Julie, who is originally from Gaithersburg, MD, trains with Olga Kutuzova at Capital Rhythmics and is also the Pan American champion. Let's wish her continuous success in 2011! Enjoy more pictures of the best U.S. gymnast:
