Malcolm Gee 2019
On 7th April, we attended the Malcolm Gee Invitational at All Starz Gymnastics Club in Evesham.
In Round 1 we had 2 teams competing. In the Beginner 8-9 category, Alicia, Caitlyn, Freya and Felicity competed in their first 4 piece competition and did very well to perform their newly learned routines. They narrowly missed out on a medal placing 4th. We also had a team in the Beginner age 5-7 category, where Safina, Isla and Taylor-Grace took part in their first ever competition. They competed with huge smiles on their faces and came home with gold medals.
Round 2 saw our Beginner age 10-11 team compete. Evie, Poppy, Fleur and Daisy each had a clean competition to win the silver medal as a team. This is a fantastic achievement despite half of the team being aged only 8 and having a team member get injured the day before the competition.
We had 2 teams in Round 3. The Intermediate 10-11 team of Katie, Ruby, Lexie and Martha started their competition off strong on bars, and despite a few mistakes on beam, won the bronze medal. The Intermediate 12-13 team of Alicia, Coni, Lucy and Leah also won the bronze medal, highlighted by some very good vaults.
The final round had our 4 Advanced teams competing. In the 12-13 competition, our teams placed 2nd (Emily-Mae, Lucy, Maddison, Danniella and Isabella) and 3rd (Ella-Rose, Megan and Emily, who were competing with a team member down due to illness). In the 14+ competition, our teams placed 2nd (Mia, Lily, Esme and Niamh) and 3rd (Megan, Amelie and Becky).
Well done to all the gymnasts, and thank you to the parents, coaches (Sam, John, Hollie and Megan) and judges (Sam and Hollie) who supported us on the day. Full results are on our competition results page and photos are in our photo gallery
