Winter Wonderland Competition at Watford Sunday 25th December 2018.
Dolphina Gymnastics Club's friendly four piece competition last weekend involved 7 clubs and 135 gymnasts from the South East .
T30 Gym took a large team of 21 gymnasts for the event for the very first time and we gained lots of experience. This was the first time that many of our children had experienced a four piece competition.
Up against some very good club gymnasts, our girls certainly held their own with some fine individual performances on the day.
Age 7 novice:- Olivia M was top scorer overall with Lucy M 2nd and Miriam A in 3rd. In addition Miriam took floor Gold whilst Lucy M took Vault-Gold, Bars-Silver as well as Bronze on Beam and floor. Gracie O and Kate W. narrowly missed out on the medals on Vault
Age 8 novice:- Shared Golds for Evie GW and Arabella O. on Vault whilst Evie also shared Bronze with Faith S. on Beam.
Age 7-9 Intermediate:- Golds for Natasha C. Vault and Emily W. Beam. Silvers for Matilda D. on Vault and Floor and Charlotte L. and Hannah H. on Bars. Bronze for Lucie S. on Vault and for Darcey W. on Beam.
Age 10 Intermediate:- Ava S. had a solid all round performance scoring well on all pieces and ended in 5th position overall of 17 girls. An excellent effort.
Age 8-10 Advanced:- Millie M. had a strong competition in this tough group and would have won overall gold but for a poor beam score. With Gold on Vault and bronzes on both Bars and Floor she can be very pleased with her performance.
Age 11+ Advanced:- Rebecca N-S. performed very well and was unlucky to miss out on medals on Vault and Bars but came good with an excellent Bronze medal on Floor.
Special Awards on the day were given to Arabella and Natasha for presenting wonderfully decorated competitor numbers. Evie for a lovely free cartwheel, Arabella for massive height on her vault. Iona B. received recognition for her artistry on the floor and determination on the bars. Charlotte L. managed the highest cast away on the bars and Matilda D. , Ava S., Emily W., and Lucie S. all got special mentions for their work on various pieces.
Well done to everybody and in particular to our dedicated coaches who gave up their whole Sunday to be with the children and also to you parents for bringing them along. A big thanks also to Dolphina Gym club for putting on such a fun event.
