On Saturday 15th February, a number of our Elite gymnasts set off half way up the country to take part in Flic Flac's Competition. After a long journey and a good rest overnight all our gymnasts were ready to compete on Sunday 16th February.
This competition was another chance for the gymnasts to confirm their scores for the USAIGC World Championships in Orlando in June.
First to compete, was our Copper 2 gymnasts and Catherine, Lauren and Layla all took home at least 2 medals. Catherine and Layla took home Silver on the Vault and Bronze on the Beam. Layla also took Bronze on the floor and Catherine took another Bronze on the bars. Lauren flew to Silver on the bars and also bronze on floor in her respective age category.
Next up was our Bronze level gymnasts and Lacie-Lou had an amazing morning taking Silver on Vault, Bar and Beam and this was topped off with Gold on the Floor in her age category. Sam also took a full sweep of 4 Silver medals.
In the Diamond category, the medals kept coming! At this rate we would need another mini-bus just to take the medals back to Surrey! Susanna took home 3 Golds (Vault, Beam and Floor) along with Bronze on the bar. She was our gymnasts who topped the podium most on Sunday - an extra special well done to her! Maya did not disappoint with a haul of two Silver and two Bronze. Grace was not far behind Susanna in her age category and took 2 Golds ( Beam and Floor) along with Bronze on Vault and Bars.
Going into the afternoon, the medals kept coming for Silver gymnasts. Coach Liberty took Gold on the Floor along with Bronze on the Vault. Esme took 3 Bronzes, only missing out on a medal on the vault. Jane R also scooped a Silver on Vault and Bronze on the floor. Last to perform, was our Copper 1 gymnasts. Tallulah took gold on the bars and Bronze on Vault.
Again a huge congratulations to all the gymnasts who took part, we are all super proud of you all!
