Two young local gymnasts are poised to contend among 21,000 other participants from 50 countries at a huge international competition in Finland this summer.
South Cariboo Rhythmic Gymnastics Club members Sarah Robinson and Jill McArthur are getting set for the 2015 World Gymnaestrada in Helsinki, July 12-18. The pair will be traveling as part of the Canadian contingent.
“Jill and Sarah will for the first time be experiencing an international event,” says coach Sang-Hee Robinson. “They will make unbelievable memories and friends from all over the world.”
Recently, the pair went to Victoria in February where McArthur and Robinson won titles for free and hoop and free and ball routines.
“Their hard work and dedication has helped them to reach their goals,” the coach adds. “They had tons of fun and returned with great memories and results.”
