Little Elisa Meneghini, who has been a promising young rising star in Italy won the all-around and took beam and floor. In second place was German junior talent, Kim Janas (read a TCG feature about her here). She also won bars. The vault title went to Slovenian gymnast Teja Bellak.
Our Italian writer Giulia Holzer has been anticipating Elisa’s elite future for some time now. Known as ‘Mini’, she is showing some great difficulty for a young Italian gymnast. She trains at the same club as Elisabetta Preziosa and Emily Armi.
