Linoy Ashram Wins Silver As She Heads Toward Tokyo Olympics

(Mara Vigevani/TPS) Linoy Ashram, a 19-year-old Israeli athlete, won a silver medal in the hoop exercise at the Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria, this week. This is the first time an Israeli gymnast has achieved a silver in this category during a world championship.

Ashram received a score of 20 points and was surpassed only by Russian gymnast Dina Averina, who received a score of 20.85.

In August, Ashram broke a world record at the Gymnastics World Cup with a score of 20.65. Last year, the rhythmic gymnast also won a bronze medal during the all-around competition during the World Championship in Italy.
