Roe Gymnasts challenge themselves at NI Zonal Competition

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.
