German rhythmic gymnast Mia Sophie Littke has passed away. The Swabian Gymnastic Association announced the death of 16-year-old Litke on its website on Monday.
It is said that Litke, who was part of the national team, died suddenly and completely unexpectedly on Thursday of last week.

Last year, Littke won gold in hoop and silver in the all-around competition at the German Junior Championships. They are said to be aiming for the 2028 Summer Olympics.
– His goal was the Olympic Games and he did everything for it. I am sure he will be successful in this also. I can’t even imagine what his family is going through at this time. “It’s really sad,” former top gymnast Magdalena Brzeska, who trained Litke, told Bild, according to the NTV channel.
