SEVEN Roe Gymnastics gymnasts entered the NI Zonal TeamGym Invitational Competition, held at Abbey Gymnastics Centre, Belfast on Sunday November 11.
TeamGym is a relatively new gymnastics discipline, which allows gymnasts of different abilities to perform at the same time as part of a full (up to 12 gymnasts) or micro (up to five gymnasts) team.
Roe Gymnastics entered two ‘microteams’ of four and three gymnasts, competing in tumbling and trampette/vault, against four other clubs from across Northern Ireland (Abbey, Arabesque, Kaleidoscope and Shooting Starz). 20 teams competed in total.
The Roe Level 6 team (Maisy Thompson, Leah Bonham, Annaleece Hetherington and Clea Moore) performed well in the Primary (age 9-11) age group and the Roe Level 5 team (Cara Irwin, Kayden Brown and Clara-Louise O’Neill) won silver in their Primary group.
The teams were accompanied by Head Coach, Emma Brown, Proficiency / assistant coach Ellie McIlmoyle (who also gave up her time to judge the competition) and club volunteers Riah Doherty and Emma Service.
