Israel’s national rhythmic gymnastics team secured its place at the Rio Olympics on Saturday, joining Neta Rivkin who did so a day earlier after ending the individual allaround final at the World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany in seventh place.

The team of Yuval Filo, Alona Koshevatskiy, Ekaterina Levina, Karina Lykhvar and Ida Mayrin finished the group all-around final in sixth position on Saturday, recording an overall result of 34.283 points, 17.333 in the ribbons and 16.950 in the clubs and hoops.

The top eight in the competition all officially booked their place at the 2016 Olympic Games. The Israeli women also advanced to both of Sunday’s finals in Stuttgart, in the ribbons and the clubs and hoops.

The team ended the all-around final at last year’s Worlds in an impressive fifth place while also taking a silver in the clubs final.
