Japanese Gymnasts @ Serdang Rhythmic Angels

Last week, Seradang Rhythmic Angels had some special guests-Gymnasts from Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan. They are the former gymnasts of our coach, Ms Makoto Sato.

The 5 gymnasts were here for a short training camp to prepare for their upcoming competitions.

Observing the their training was really an eye-opener as they are highly discipline and very respectful towards everyone. In addition to that, the spirit and energy they bring into their training is really inspiring. That is the kind of foundation that we need to bring up a successful gymnast. So, we hope, this exposure would motivate SRA's gymnasts to work harder and achieve greater heights in their rhythmic gymnastics career.

One day before the Japanese girls are due to fly back home, we had a mini control testing where we got the chance to see all of them performing their individual and group exercise. People always say that the  Japanese group exercise is one of the best in the world. Seeing their performance on that day, we have no more doubt about their team work, creativity and originality. Other than that, on that day itself, SRA gymnasts also got the opprtunity to display their skills in their respective categories.

After all the hard work, we had a small gathering at the auditorium. We were able to enjoy food prepared from our SRA's mummies. There were nasi lemak, karipap, kuih, ketupat, curry chicken, agar-agar...It was definitely a Malaysian food affair.

The gymnasts even took the opportunity to exchange gifts and contacts as well as take photos with our 'stars'. It was quite an experience for the gymnasts, especially the young ones. In three words, everyone had fun!

Sayonara to the Japanese girls and we welcome you to come visit us again. All the best to all of you:)
