Darja Varfolomeev: "Sportswoman of the Month" in Germany

*Deutsche Sporthilfe --: Five-time gymnastics world champion Darja VARFOLOMEEV has been voted "Sportswoman of the Month" for August  in Germany by the approximately 4,000 athletes supported by "Sporthilfe".
The 16-year-old gymnast from TSV Schmiden (near Stuttgart) won five gold medals at the 40th World Championships in Rhythmic Gymnastics in Valencia/Spain in the all-around as well as with hoops, ball, clubs and ribbon. She also won the silver medal in the team competition. Of Germany's up-and-coming and top athletes, Varfolomeev now received the title "Sportswoman of the Month" for her outstanding performance, ahead of the German kayak foursome and para-swimmer Tanja Scholz. Unlike journalists' or the public's votes, only Germany's best young and top athletes vote here, giving the award its very special touch.
