“This is the first international competition that Linoy competed in this season,” a statement by Israel’s Gymnastics Federation read. “Linoy presented new exercises with high levels of difficulty, and we are proud of her for achieving such an excellent score, which is undoubtedly the result of the hard work put in by Linoy and her trainer, Ayelet Zussman.”

Ashram’s journey was not an easy one, and included several attempts in the past to make it to the world stage among the world’s top gymnasts. In 2019 she came close when she managed to win the silver medal in the hoop maneuver and a bronze in the ball maneuver at the 2019 World Championship in Baku, Azerbaijan.

And in November last year, she got one step closer, when she won a gold medal in the all around competition at the European Championships in Kiev, Ukraine, becoming the first Israeli European all-around champion.

The 21-year-old from Rishon Lezion continues to prove that she is one of the most promising gymnasts in the world today, with a bright future ahead of her.
