Young Gymnasts Excel in National Competition
Last weekend, 2 teams of gymnasts travelled to Guildford to represent Stamford Junior School at the 2014 IAPS National Gymnastics Championships.
The Under 10 team showed great determination and progress to finish in a creditable 10th place. The judges were full of admiration for their floor routines and commented on the improvement they had made. The Under 11 team were determined to try and get a top 6 placing but with the competition being at such a high standard they knew it would not be easy. Their competition was spread throughout the whole day and they fought hard to finish in 5th position – one place up from last year.
Individual honours went to Isabella Plant (U11) who showed incredible talent to finish 3rd individually amongst some nationally ranked gymnasts.
The same 2 teams will be in action again in the national GISGA 2 piece competition next weekend in Birmingham along with the U9 team who will compete in their first national competition.
