Significant result at Puerto de Santa Maria

At the other event on Saturday that the Gibraltar Rhythmic Gymnastics
Association School participated in no podium positions were achieved, however some notable results were achieved.

The competition at the Puerto de Santa Maria (Cadiz) was an “A” Level
competition where a total of sixteen schools and clubs from around the
Cadiz region took part. This competition was one of the most important
that the Association has participated in. Despite this fact, we were still able to bring home a couple of significant results.

Nicola Bosio came 4th in the Infantil Hoop discipline.
Gabriella Gracia came 6th at the same discipline.
A remarkable achievement by these two gymnasts proving the progression
that the Association school is achieving.

We must congratulate Gibraltar’s gymnasts on producing some exceptional results.
The girls are truly flying the flag for Gibraltar and making us all very proud of their fantastic achievements.
Well done girls!
