Natalia Gaudio is a rhythmic gymnast. Her sport combines gymnastics with hand-eye coordination and dance. It also includes props – or “apparatus” – like ribbons and hoops.

Natalia is one of the world’s top-ranking rhythmic gymnasts. Like the sport she has mastered, her personal life has had its ups and downs as well.
