Youngster took top honours in ribbon discipline at Devotion Cup

Brentwood School gymnast Anita Chetraru struck gold in her first competitive outing in the ribbon discipline at this year’s International Rhythmic Gymnastics Tournament Devotion Cup.

Some 265 gymnasts, representing 22 clubs and from seven different countries, took part in the inaugural event hosted by the Devotion Rhythmic Gymnastics Academy at Newham Leisure Centre last weekend.

Chetaru took the gold medal in the Year 2007 Level B ribbon class.

The Brentwood School student’s club only opens ribbon events up to gymnasts aged 11 or over.

Ribbon exercises require absolute amplitude of movements and good fast-strength because the ribbon must be in motion from the beginning until the end of an exercise.

The 11-year-old started taking gymnastics classes when she was just eight and trains with the London Sport Academy four times a week for up to five hours a day.

With a gold medal already under her belt, there could be plenty more success for Chetaru in the years to come.
