Evelin’s impressions from the World Championship
Our DP-1 student Evelin attended the 38th Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships in Kitakyushu, Japan. She writes about her experience in a World Cups competition.
These World Cups were my first, and I am thrilled to have experienced them for the first time in Kitakyushu, Japan. Although very extreme measures had been taken due to Covid-19: at the airport, we had our own manager assigned to us to ensure that we were completely isolated from other people, the experience was unique and unforgettable. We had to take two corona tests every day, and we couldn’t go anywhere without a mask. In the canteens, we all sat two-feet apart and behind the safety glasses.
Regardless of the extraordinary measures, the experience of the competitions was complete. The Japanese government had allowed spectators into the hall, and their support was felt in large numbers. The competitors were very well organized, and the hall was something I could only have dreamed of. The atmosphere was very friendly; the kindness and friendliness of the Japanese was felt by everyone. I don’t think I’ve ever met such nice people before.
Me and my team were satisfied with the result of the competition because the goal this time was to qualify for the World Games, and that is what we achieved. Overall, we remained in 13th place, and although many countries chose not to participate due to the spread of the virus, the competition was high. After every Olympics, the rules change, and this was the last big competition with these rules, and now we are preparing for new rules with new plans.
