On Sunday 4th March, 45 gymnasts from Radlett Gym Club travelled to Ware to compete in the Affinity Invitational, a floor and trampette competition aimed at general gymnasts who only train a few hours a week. This was the first gymnastics competition ever for the majority of our gymnasts, and they did us proud. Overall we had a very successful day, coming away with 6 Gold Medals, 5 Silvers and 6 Bronzes, as well as many 4th place finishes.
In the Bronze category, Radlett’s gymnasts did a fantastic job, taking 12 medals between them, including 5 golds, 3 silvers and 4 bronzes! Medals from Fairfield and St John’s pupils were as follows: Gold on Floor – Finn Hulbert; Gold on Trampette – Alex Smith; Silver on Floor – Cecilie Suitters; Silver on Trampette – Finn Hulbert; Bronze on Trampette – Joshua Smith; Bronze on Floor – Alex Smith; Bronze on Trampette – Anisia Belghiru; Bronze on Trampette – Olivia Stafford.
In the Silver category, we came away with 1 silver and 1 bronze, the bronze won on Trampette by Scarlett Mackulin-Mcmahon, in a very tough round of competition. In the Gold category, Radlett earned a gold on floor with Harley Morris taking the medal and a bronze on floor and a silver medal on Trampette both won by Jessica Justin, in yet another challenging round.
Head Coach Helene and coaches Philippa and Jenny were thrilled by the results and performances from all gymnasts, especially as they missed their final week of training due to the snow and class cancellations. Well done to all who took part!
Thanks again for allowing us to work with so many of your talented pupils! We had so many 4th and 5th places from them as well.
