IAPS National Finals Gymnastics Championships 2017

30th November 17

On Saturday 25th November the Maltman’s Gymnasts were competing at the IAPS (Independent Association of Prep Schools) National Finals at Kent College in Tunbridge Wells.

They have been training hard for this competition since the start of the school year and it was great to see their efforts come into fruition on the day. This was the biggest IAPS gymnastics competition to date with 30 schools and 430 gymnasts taking part and Maltman’s had an U9, U10 and U11 team entered.

The U9 girls were in the 2-piece competition. The team included Annabel, Honor, Natasha, Anya and Kate. They performed a set floor routine and did 2 vaults of their choice. The U10’s and U11’s did the 5-piece competition. This involved set floor, an individual floor routine to music, 2 set vaults and 2 vaults of their choice. Then to finish off their competition, the girls performed a group sequence. In the U10 team we had Lillianne, Alessia, Katerina, Mathilde and Elizabeth. The U11 team involved Sophie, Victoria, Poppy, Arabella, Libby and Eloise.

The girls did themselves, their coaches; Nicola Owen and Laura Timmins proud by performing some wonderful routines and vaults, and as a result we were rewarded with a plethora of medals and trophies.
