May 2009

The first competition was the primary girl’s competition for gymnasts aged between 8 and 12 years.

The Scarborough Sparkles had a fantastic day, performing confidently and consistently throughout their routines. The initial sight of the large competition arena along with the competition formalities such as standing for the national anthem prior to the competition, created a few more nerves among the team than usual. The team started their competition with their group floor routine, the team scoring a fantastic 7.40, the team then moved on to perform their tumble routine, which they performed without any major faults or falls, scoring 6.23. The routine included six gymnasts performing three separate tumbles in quick succession. The tumbles included performing somersaults in various shapes, straight, & pike with and without twists and using different directions. The team concluded their competition with their trampette routine; this involved six gymnasts performing two separate twisting somersaults from the trampette & one vault using the trampette. The team performed really well and scored 6.90, earning them 3rd place on this piece of apparatus. The competition was extremely close, the primary team came an amazing fourth place overall in the close fought competition with a score or 20.53.

The Junior girls team were next to compete, the team of 11 members aged between 12 and 16 were representing the North.

The team opened their competition with their new floor routine which was performed with lots of energy, style & synchronisation. The excellent teamwork throughout the routine earned the team a well deserved score of 7.93. Next the team performed their tumble routine. The team did extremely well performing their new tumbles, earning them a score of 7.16. Lastly the All Stars moved on to perform their trampette routine which was executed with confidence & excellent teamwork, earning them a score of 7.50, taking 3rd place on this piece of apparatus.
