GMPD (Gymnastic and Movement for People with Disabilities) Floor and Vault Competition February 2011
For the first ever time SGC entered the annual London Gymnastics Floor and Vault Competition for gymnasts with Special Needs. The event was held at East London Gymnastics Centre on February 20th 2011.
There was a mixture of excitment and nerves from the gymnasts Joe, Daniel, Issaac, Stephen and Keegan when they arrived, but the small band of gymnasts were able to warm up and practice on the floor which helped settle their nerves.
After the warm up the gymnasts were proud to march on and salute to their name in front of the audience. Then it was down to business as each gymnast competed two vaults and their floor routine. The gymnasts were competing in age groups and either physical or learning disability. Considering most of our gymnasts had never competed before they did very well to perform and then wait around for the scores to come in.
All of the SGC gymnasts were really happy to come home with a medal and a certificate and looking forward to the next competition! Well done everyone!
