Yesterday, Wednesday 27th March 2013, our team of 6 gymnasts took part in the Beginners Gym County Finals. They were representing Carlisle and North Cumbria. The team was Ashleigh Mitchell, Emily Watson, Giorgia Camele, Sofia Ponton, Joseph Kelly and Anna Beales. The competition was held at the Leisure Centre in Penrith and was the 3rd of 3 rounds of competition.
The gymnasts performed a floor routine to music (no music for Joseph), a body management routine and a vault. They all gave their best efforts and were really pleased with how they performed in the very intense atmosphere! The results were announced and we were all pleased to finish 3rd out of the six counties represented at the competition. I’m certain that all of the parents who came to watch their children were very proud, as was Mrs Geary who was anxiously watching from the audience whilst trying to take photos!
I would like to say HUGE congratulations to all of the gymnasts and to thank them for the hard work and determination they have shown in the build-up and throughout the competitions – the early mornings and after school sessions have been a pleasure. I hope they will all continue to do gym in the future!
