Due to Spain’s economic cut-backs, Carolina Rodríguez is the only rhythmic gymnast that is being paid for by Spain to represent them at the European Championships in Vienna.  As you’ll see from this video of a performance of her doing a ribbon routine, she performs with beauty, skill, and grace.

All other Spanish rhythmic gymnasts have to raise their own money to compete for their country at the Championships.  The government will contribute toward the cost, but each gymnast must contribute a substantial amount.


Reward yourself for your hard work.
