The new Bulgarian rhythmic gymnastics ensemble won the all-around title in the 2022 Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships in Sofia. The gold medals went to Zhenina Trashlieva, Rachel Stoyanov, Sofia Ivanova, Margarita Vasileva, Kamelia Petrova and Radina Tomova.

The huge success comes just a year after their predecessors won gold at the Tokyo Olympics. In addition to this country's first title in the ensemble all-around competition since Izmir 2014, the team of coach Vesela Dimitrova also won a quota for the Olympics in Paris in 2024.

 "We are to create even more beautiful and attractive combinations, we will work together more and I can boldly say that together we could try to grab the title in Paris,” the happy coach said.
