Stars Shine at LA Lights for a Great Beginning of the 2016 Rhythmic Gymnastics Season

Every year, one of the first international event, and a great opportunity to see the new routines of some of the competitors in the world elite, is the La Lights Tournament. Among the stars we can see in the United States this year are the following team members from Ukraine and Belarus:

Belarus National Team
Bazhko, Hanna
Bolotina, Elena
Charopa, Arina
Halkina, Katsiaryna
Trubach, Maryia

Ukraine National Team
Dmytrash, Olena,
Gomon, Yevgeniya
Grisadova, Oleksandra
Gudym, Valeriia
Mazur, Victoria
Rizatdinova, Ganna

Rizatdinova is already a world champion with hoop, while both Halkina and Charopa from Belarus have also won numerous medals at prestigious international events. Bozhko, Bolotina and Trubach are the young additions to the super-star team Belarus, who achieved great results as juniors and are now joining the fiercely competitive world of the senior gymnastics elite. I am very curious about the new routines of Mazur from the Ukraine, too, because she has been part of the national team of Ukraine for a long time, but has yet to reveal her great potential. There were some rumors that she was moving to the group exercise and I certainly hope they are not true.

If you are in the LA area, do not miss the chance to watch these amazing athletes live. Below is the tournament poster and a link to the event website:

This tournament has become the most exciting annual event in the world of North American rhythmic gymnastics and it promises to introduces both the new routines of well-known stars as well as to many future talents.
