Gymnastics: Ashram Tops Rhythmic World Series Rankings, Ahead of Belorussian Pair

With the conclusion of the 2021 Rhythmic Gymnastics World Series, three more athletes have booked their spot to the Olympics. Four World Series events were held in Sofia Bulgaria, Tashkent Uzbekistan, Baku Azerbaijan and Pesaro Italy. Athletes can earn points based on their ranking where their best three performances counted towards their ranking. The three highest ranked eligible athletes qualified to the games.

The ranking list was topped by Israel’s Linoy Ashram whom won the Sofia event and finished with a total of 115 points. Just behind her was Belarus’ Alina Harnasko (110 points) and her compatriot Anastasiia Salos (105 points). Russia’s Dina Averina won the Tashkent and Pesaro events, but as she only competed in those two events, she finished fourth. The Baku event was won by Russia’s Daria Trubnikova.

The Olympic quotas were won by Slovenia’s Ekaterina Vedeneeva, Uzbekistan’s Sabina Tashkenbaeva and Japan’s Chisaki Oiwa.

Only a handful of Olympic quotas in the rhythmic individual all-around remain with most of them being allocated at their respective continental qualifiers over the next month.
