While some people have rhythm, others compete with it in sport.

Salut Rhythmic Gymnastics hosts the second Salut Cup International from April 29-30, at the Markham Pan Am Centre.

The competition will contribute to the promotion of Rhythmic Gymnastics among Canadian athletes, and the public, and strengthen relations with international gymnastics federations, said Maria Rudneva, co-director of Salut National Rhythmic Gymnastics Centre.

“We’re expecting a lot of gymnasts from various countries including Canada, USA, New Zealand and Russia, it is very exciting,” said Rudneva. “There will be ten countries with high-performance athletes performing; this is a great experience for our Canadian gymnasts to compete with other countries.”

In addition, there will be a performance by younger children, which will demonstrate how early kids can start said Rudneva.

“By starting at a younger age, children will undoubtedly develop superb skills over the years in training”
