West of Scotland Competition Results

Well done to all of the gymnasts who competed at the West of Scotland Championships two weeks ago. The club had several gymnasts competing for the first time and all gymnasts performed very well on the day.

The club’s Grade 2 WG of Ainslie Bennett, Jess Daly and Aimee McInally competed for the first time at this level and won bronze medals after making the transition from Grade 1 to Grade 2 from the Scottish Championships in February.

Sarah Finlay, Holly Kelly and Cara McGinley competed in the Grade 1 WG category and claimed silver medals after an excellent routine which demonstrated strong technical work and precise choreography.

Grade 2 WP saw two pairs from the club take to the floor with very different routines. Hazel Howat and Dani Thomson put on a terrific performance as usual and finished the competition in 2nd position after a routine full of character. Sarah Finlay and Holly Kelly claimed the gold medals in G2 WP after a well executed routine which was polished and poised throughout.  Sarah and Holly also achieved the highest score of the competition which was a fantastic achievement.

As well as these medals, the club had several other top six results which was very encouraging particularly given the young age of many of the gymnasts competing.

Well done to you all!!

Scottish Tumble Championships 2013 Results

Congratulations to all the tumblers who took part in the Scottish Tumble Championships at East Kilbride last weekend.  The competition proved to be very tough in all categories but the club had many gymnasts competing who produced strong tumble runs on the day.

Holly Kelly competed in the National 2 Women’s Tumble 11/12years age group and performed three excellent tumble runs to finish in the bronze medal position with a combined score of 78.9. Holly’s tumbles demonstrated her impressive power and speed on the track and she was unlucky not to finish higher up the medals being just 0.3 away from gold.

Ellie Lavy took to the track in her first ever tumble competition and performed in the National 1 Women’s Tumble 13years+ category. Ellie showed her natural strength and power in each of her runs and finished the competition in third place.  Ellie was one of the youngest in this category and performed superbly to win her bronze medal which she can add to her bronze from the Acro Championships from the previous week.

Congratulations to both Holly and Ellie for excellent performances at this event.  Well done!
