The U10 and U11 gymnasts took part in the IAPS National Gymnastics Competition at Guildford High School last Saturday, 25 November.
There were 16 schools from around the country competing at the event. As always our Maltman’s girls shone brightly, not only with their sparkly leotards but also in the performances.
Nerves were running high, but the girls stuck to their aim of having fun and doing their best. In the Group Sequence competition, both the U10 and U11 teams performed in almost perfect synchronisation. Their polished routine impressed the judges who placed them in the top spot in front of some very strong competition.
After the group sequence competition, the girls competed in the individual competition the girls performed 2 floor routines and 4 vaults each. Again, there were some great scores from the judges which added up to both teams finishing in 4th position overall.
Congratulations to Sophie S, Victoria D, Lilianne J-A, Poppy C and Libby B in the U10 team; and Arabella D, Laura R, Rebecca N-S, Haniya G and Emma C who competed in the U11 team.
