Bianka Panova Academy Team to Train with World Champions in Bulgaria

SINGAPORE, August 16, 2018 - Singaporean rhythmic gymnastics academy, Bianka Panova Sport and Art Academy (BPSAA), is set to send ten of its young athletes in a week-long training camp programme in Bulgaria led by world-class champions.

The camp to be held in Sofia on September 1 to September 8 at the Festival Hall in Manastirska will focus on classes and sessions on various athletic skills. These sessions will be led by prominent and winning Bulgarian gymnasts and coaches including Ekaterina Pirozhkova, who has trained the Russian National team, and gold-medalist gymnast Lili Ignatova, who will be focusing on teaching apparatus techniques. National Cup-winning gymnastics coach Georgi Tasev will also lead some sessions during the training camp.

BPSAA’s co-founder and head coach Bianka Panova shared that, “The purpose of the one-week intensive training would be to enhance their overall body techniques, coordination and instrumentation, which will encourage sportsmanship and competitiveness at the same time.”

Special programmes on specialisations such as classical choreography, elements of pre-acrobatics, acting and other individual activities are also part of the training camp.

“Ten of our athletes aged between 5 and 11 are expected to undergo focused training on strength, endurance, and flexibility which are all key factors in every good performance,” added co-founder and director Daniela Michaely.

Both Panova and Michaely believe in the benefits of athlete participation in such training and camps as these would expose them to new environments and challenges, as well as open them to broader and more significant opportunities.
