View 3 - A young woman wearing a dark bathing suit can be seen leaping up in the air and doing rhythmic gymnastics at water's edge with two large beach balls "tied" behind her shoulders. Rhythmic gymnastics is a sport in which single, pairs, trios or even larger groups of competitors manipulate one or two apparatuses such as a rope, hoop, ball, clubs and/or ribbons. Elements of ballet, gymnastics, theatrical dance and apparatus manipulation are combined. As a sport, Rhythmic gymnastics began in the 1940s in the Soviet Union, and has steadily increased in popularity since then. A roller coaster and several tall buildings can be seen in the background; it is unknown if this location is in Santa Monica, Venice, or Long Beach.
