The 2017 gymnastic season started with our first competition held at Kingsley school on January 29th. Our two teams of intermediate gymnasts and novice individuals competed alongside some very talented gymnasts from school all over the South West.
The intermediate under 11 boys’ team, Josh Lui, Stanley Waters and Ewan Shadrick had the judges giggling with their cheeky trio team routine when they ‘dabbed’ at the end. With that, their vaults and individual routines they achieved 2nd place which qualifies them for the National finals held in Stoke-on-Trent where they will compete against schools from all over the United Kingdom.
Our mixed under 11 team, Archie Waters, Holly Chamberlain and Megan Fry also achieved a very well deserved 1st place when they impressed the judges with their ‘Bollywood’ team routine, vaults and individual routines. They will also be competing at Stoke-on-Trent representing our school, and the whole of the South West.
Individually our gymnasts had some fantastic results with Archie Waters winning first place in the under 11 intermediate boys category, Holly Chamberlain an impressive 3rd in the under 11 intermediate girls and in the under 11 novice category, Olivia Guy won 3rd place.
