Dina Mironskaya 4x sixth at the Pharao's Cup

Rhythmic gymnasts from 18 countries and five continents formed the strong participant field of the “Pharao’s Cup” from the 28th to the 30th. June 2024 in Cairo. Vienna’s Dina Mironskaya (photo) made it to all four elite top 8 equipment finals and there in sixth place in each. Bulgaria’s all-round European champion Stiliana Nikolova dominated with four vies.

Dina Mironskaya: “I am very satisfied, had not expected to reach the Finali, maybe hoping for one or two. It was very exciting for me to do gymnastics in addition to several world-class gymnasts and Olympic starters.”

Austria’s judge Paulina Miklavcic classifies the events: “It was an important competition before the Olympic Games, in which the gymnasts had the opportunity to present themselves. The Pharao’s Cup was headed by the Egyptian FIG-TK President Noha Shabana and was well attended.

On the first two days, qualifications were turned on – on Friday ball and tires, on Saturday band and clubs. There was no all-around classification. The best eight – but a maximum of one gymnast per country – qualified for the finals. Arina Mironskaya, Dina’s sister was therefore not allowed to participate in the finals, but it was also an important experience for her.”
