SILVER MEDAL AT BRITISH TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS
We Have Got a Team Spirit
We are proud to announce that our girls achieved a Silver medal in the Junior Team Championships at the Rhythmic Gymnastics British Team Championships 2015 at Fenton Manor Sports Complex on Sunday 22 November 2015.
It was the first time that we competed in a National group event. Our group was the only one not competing in the National Group Leagues and no-one expected such a strong team. The competition included a group routine of 5 girls, a duet and an individual routine. Our group performed beautifully with a very clean routine despite its difficulty. The group which included Chiara, Connie, Jessica, Laura and Ruta achieved second place. The duet (Jessica and Ruta) were very determined and with an excellent performance achieved first place. Laura performed the individual routine with amazing expression and despite 2 mistakes fought to finish in 4th place.
This excellent result was due to the expertise and experience of Head Coach, Rocio Sanchez Fernandez and Marga Iniesta Gonzalez.
