Gymnasts do themselves proud

SPORTS Acrobatics members from the Gladstone Gymnastic Club competed at its first state titles last weekend.

All 14 of the Sports Acrobatic gymnasts at the club successfully qualified earlier in the year for the state gymnastic championships, which were held at the Ormiston College last weekend.

They represented the club in the Level 3 trio, Level 4 Women's Pairs and Level 4 Women's Group.

The coaches were pleased with how the gymnasts performed, especially the Level 4 Women's Group who were only competing together for the second time this year and improved their results immensely.

It was a great experience for all gymnasts who are still relatively new to the Sports Acrobatics discipline as the Club reintroduced it at the end of 2009 and made it competitive at the start of 2010.

Head coach David Capill said the girls performed exceptionally well over the weekend and had a fun time.

“I am proud of each and every one of them as they left it all out on the floor which is the best you can ask for,” he said.

The Sports Acrobatics competitive season may be over for the year, but the girls continue normal training to prepare for another performance at the end-of-year display on November 21 at the Gladstone Entertainment Centre.
