Our Women’s Artistic gymnasts have been busy out at competitions over the past month or so. Read on to catch up on all the action…
Paul Reay North West Team Challenge
Last month some of our Junior and Senior girls went to compete at the Paul Reay Challenge. For quite a few of our gymnasts this was their first time taking part in a 4 piece competition and many gymnasts went out performing brand new skills. The difficulty was also raised with the fact that they competed in an open age category, meaning that some of our gymnasts were up against girls twice their age! All of the gymnasts represented the club fantastically and put in their best effort, we hope they all enjoyed the experience and carry it forward to future competitions.
North West Age Groups & FIG Challenge Cup Qualifiers
Towards the end of September Akyra, Amayah, Mabelle and Renee went to Wigan to take on the North West Age Groups and FIG Challenge Cup Qualifiers. Akyra had a fantastic competition coming 1st on bars, beam, floor & overall combined level 4 champion, with the highlight of Akyra’s round being her incredible beam routine. Later on our FIG gymnasts entered the competition attempting many upgrades. Mabelle also had an amazing beam performance taking gold on beam and bronze overall. Renèe had a challenging day but took it head on, and ended up taking silver on vault, along with 4th on beam and bars. This was Amayah’s first event competing as an FIG gymnast, and she put in fantastic effort managing to qualify for the challenge cup.
The following weekend our girls were back out competing in South Durham at the Pink Ladies competition. It was a weekend filled with amazing results, and as there were so many we have listed them below.
