Splitz Gymnastics Club attended the NDP South West Prelims on the 16th and 17th March. We took a team of 11 gymnasts to the competition and we are so pleased with the results from our team!
On the Saturday we had our Trio, Mia, Amelia & Bella, who have jumped up a grade for this competition, now performing throw and catch moves in a combined routine, placing them GOLD with a great score! This trio were in the out of age category, but would’ve still placed with a silver medal if they were against the in age trios AND pairs!
We had our pair, Chloe & Enya who performed a new routine for this competition, placing them BRONZE with the highest score out of all Splitz competitors who competed on both days. They have been awarded a Merit certificate from British Gymnastics because of their high score of 25.700 out of 21 other competitors.
Our pair, Jess & Lexi, in the same category as our other pair, performed a powerful routine and also achieved a high score over 25:000. This pair had jumped up a whole two grades for this competition and performed fantastically, placing them in 5th place out of 21 other partnerships.
On the Sunday, we had both of our mixed pairs who both performed at high level for the first time.
Archie & Maddie who performed two brilliant routines scored 1st place in balance routine and 1st place in dynamic routine, placing them GOLD overall. This was their first competition performing high level and they proudly stood on the podium knowing they had made it to Nationals to compete against the best in the country in May. This pair were the smallest and the youngest in the category!
Lennon & Amelie who also performed two terrific routines, scored 2nd place in balance routine and 3rd place in dynamic routine placing them BRONZE overall. This partnership have been working together for under 5 months and to achieve two great routines at this level has left us all extremely proud.
We are so proud of the results from the weekend and we would like to congratulate all the gymnasts on their successes.
A big Well Done to Coach Carmen who has trained these gymnasts and also Choreographed all their routines.
We would also like to say a big thanks to Michelle Anderson our judge for giving up her Saturday to judge the NDP competition.
We would also like to thank Yate International for hosting such a great and well organised competition.
We have taken home a total of 5 GOLD medals and 4 BRONZE medals, a big well done to our gymnasts!
The gymnasts also got the opportunity to meet the Gym Stars this weekend which was amazing!
