Rhythmic Seminar features Mme. Egle Abruzzini
For the first time since 1993, the United States Rhythmic Program welcomed Technical Committee president Mme. Egle Abruzzini for a one-day seminar with America’s coaches and judges, including former Olympian Diane Simpson Bundy, National Champion Olga Karmanksy, and National Team member Julie Itkina. The President, who was in Orlando, Florida for the FIG Council meetings, arrived a day early to offer insight and clarifications for questions raised by the top technicians in the US. Set in a beautiful location, the entire Rhythmic community benefited from the open dialogue, insight, and warmth of the President and was enlightened by her expertise, recommendations, and future vision for the sport of rhythmic gymnastics. It was a very honorable occasion for the US Rhythmic Program, and the positive repercussions were felt by all in attendance, including the host, President of USA Gymnastics Steve Penny and new Rhythmic Program Director Caroline Hunt. The country looks forward to the next visit!
