Holmewood House Under 8 Floor and Vault

Gymnastics Championships

Vinehall’s youngest gymnasts enjoyed great success last weekend when they competed at the U8 Floor & Vault Championships. This event was hosted by Holmewood House; they had over 60 competitors taking part.

The gymnasts all performed a floor routine to music and a handspring to flatback on the vault.

The Vinehall U8 team Frankie F, Theodora G, Wynnie G, Alara K, Isla M and Felicity M performed their routines brilliantly and with great confidence. Frankie, Wynnie, Isla M and Felicity competed in this competition last year, but for Alara and Theodora it was their first competition experience.

The team were very surprised and excited when they were awarded 3rd place medals in the team event with Wynnie receiving an individual 5th place medal.

The excitement didn’t stop there, Felicity was absolutely delighted to win the gold medal becoming the U8 intermediate Floor & Vault Champion. She was presented with the Stuart Dunkley Memorial Salver.

 

What excellent results, very well done to you all!
