A Canadian-Fijian is soaring to new heights in the sport of Rhythmic Gymnastics in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Kaileah Sereana Ulmer Lutudromu, 11,  has won gold both in the 2018-2019 Provincials in the individual event and during the 2019 National Rhythmic Gymnastics, Group 5 girls team event in Toronto, Canada.

She also won a special award for scoring the highest overall provincial score, while the team scooped the National Novice Championship award.

“I’m super excited that my team won gold at the nationals and that we are national champion”, she said.

“I’m just as happy to have won the provincial championship.

“I want to thank my coach Anya Patlosova, my family in Canada and Fiji, teammates, friends and teachers for all the support”.

Kaileah says she loves the sport of rhythmic gymnastics because it makes her feel strong and graceful.

“Set goals, face challenges and believe in yourself.”

Kaileah’s dad, Peni Lutudromu who is from Nacamaki, Koro, Lomaiviti, is super happy at her daughter’s success.

“My wife, Mikki Ulmer and I are very proud parents.”

Peni said her daughter took up the sport of Rhythmic Gymnastics when she was 6 years old and that she has excelled.

Kaileah, a member of the Wascana Gymnastics Club, says she will continue to complete at the national level and represent either Canada or Fiji in the Olympics in near future.

“I’m a proud Fijian and you can achieve anything in life through hard work”.

She has a long-term vision of setting up a gymnasium in Fiji and teaching rhythmic gymnastics to Fijians.
