For the first time RTU cheerleaders participate in the elite division of the European Championship and enter the TOP 10 of the best countries

Riga Technical University (RTU) cheerleading team returned from the European Cheerleading Championship with the title of the ninth strongest cheerleading team. RTU cheerleaders are the first from the Baltic States to take part in the elite division of the European Championship.
