Breanna Labadan opens Rhythmic Gymnastics Worlds campaign

Breanna Labadan produced a rather quiet 46.400 points to end in 69th place after two apparatuses in the 2022 Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships individual all-around event, Wednesday evening (Thursday morning in the Philippines) at the Armeec Area in Sofia, Bulgaria.

This is the first time the Philippines entered Rhythmic Worlds, sending the 16-year-old upstart in the country’s debut.

The 31st Southeast Asian Games bronze medalist collected the said total score after taking 23.950 with the hoop and 22.450 with the ball.

Despite a solid difficulty score of 10.100 with the hoop, Labadan struggled a little and scored 7.050 on execution and 6.800 in artistry, pushing her to 60th in the said apparatus.

The Butuan native’s shaky start continued with a 75th-place finish with the ball as she scored six’s on both execution and artistry with 6.100 and 6.950, respectively, on a 9.400 difficulty score.

Italian Sofia Raffaeli currently leads the event with 66.350 with Germany’s Darja Varfolomeev and hometown bet Stiliana Nikolova behind her with 64.950 and 64.450, respectively.

Labadan, on her part, looks to finish her and the Philippines’ debut strong as she competes in ribbon and clubs, one of her stronger apparatuses, on Thursday morning in this European city.
