Young Gymnasts Shine
YOUNGSTERS from the Bolton Arena Gymnastics Club put on a great performance in the GymFusion event at The Lowry at Salford Quays.
GymFusion is a gymnastics showcase which aims to give the participants a chance to display their gymnastics skills as a team. The event shows the diverse nature of gymnastics in a way that no other event can, by bringing together the gymnastics community.
This years event had a Carnival theme and saw 16 young gymnasts from the Arena take part. This was their first time performing both together and on stage.
They performed a group floor routine and were competing against clubs from as far afield as Warrington, Cheshire and Leeds and, as the Arena’s Sue Hayes stated: “They did themselves, their parents, the club and their coaches proud.”
An array of routines were featured from the different gymnastic disciplines. The full list of teams there was: HPL Gymnastics, Leeds Gymnastics Club, Bridgewater Gymnastics Club, Diamonds T n‘ T, Warrington Gymnastics Display Team, Border Counties School of Gymnastics, National Disabilities Display Team, Cheshire Gymnastics, Wigan Seagulls Display Team, The Wire Gymnastics Club and Gymfinity.
The parents attending had an equally enjoyable time and comments ranged from “It was a fabulous event – they had a great time”, “Katie had a fabulous time and the show was great” to “Nicole really enjoyed being on the main stage of the Lowry. We are so proud of her and her team mates. A very well done to all the coaches.”
