Last night Israel got a great gift for the start of the year, as the 19-year-old athlete Linoy Ashram won the silver medal in the Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships

In a record-setting performance, Ashram came in second place in the individual hoop final at the second day of the championships in Sofia, Bulgaria, with a score of 20.000. She was bested only by Russia’s Dina Averina, who received a score of 20,650.

Ashram is from the city of Rishon Letzion, and continues her amazing journey towards the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
