UNIVERSITY of the Visayas (UV) gymnast Daniella Reggie Dela Pisa won all her events for the first time in the elementary rhythmic gymnastics competition of the 19th Milo Little Olympics- Visayas Leg at the Cebu City Sports Center.
The 10-year-old Dela Pisa took the gold medal in the over-all championship, free hand, hoop and clubs.
“So far, this is her first time that she won all her events, and I am happy for what she has achieved because it shows that she has improved a lot through years of training,” said her mother Darlene, who is also the UV gymnastic head coach.
