Ten of our gymnasts had qualifed to take part in the Grades Finals after attending the British National Inter-Regionals although only 8 attended due to school commitments.
Results at the Grades Finals this weekend were as follows, were our girls competed against groups of 20 to 30 gymnasts in each grade:
Claire Wahnon competing in the Grade 5 category came 5th with her Hoop routine and is now the 5th overall gymnast within the system.
Nicola Bosio competing in the Grade 9 category came home with a bronze medal in a 3rd podium position with her Rope routine and 6th with her Hoop routine and is now the 7th overall gymnast within the system.
Georgina Jackson, Grade 9 and Alexandra Ballantine, Grade 4 also attended the Finals, for the first time this year, after qualifying and both looked very good on the carpet with their respective routines, at which the experience learned at this level becomes an asset for them.
Head Coach Sally Holmes was congratulated by all other coaches and judges during their weekend stay in the UK as Gibraltar has been the club to show a vast improvement within the last year in rhythmic gymnastics both in having more girls qualifying and with higher standards and for their discipline within the competition as our girls were also selected to help out with duties during the competition at which they were classified as excellent and hard working girls with a very polite attitude.
