Southampton Inter-Regional Competition – Results

Sunday 3rd May 2015
Falcon gymnastics club was invited to take part in the Inter-regional competition event held down in Southampton. Partnerships who came 2nd or 3rd in their grades Regional Prelims come together over this weekend to compete not only as individual partnerships but as a regional team to win the Inter-Regional Cup.

This is a competition that we have never before entered and so was a learning experience as well as a chance to experience high level competition for our club. It was an opportunity to start branching out to competitions across the country and putting Falcon’s name out there amongst the larger clubs. We took a Grade 4 trio (Alice, Charlotte and Cherelle) who were also chosen by our Regional coach to represent in the team competition.

Alice, Charlotte and Cherelle narrowly missed out on the chance to represent our region at the National finals, but now had a second chance at a major competition. The girls seemed to take the day in their stride and did not disappoint on the floor. They completed a superb routine and held their own against the larger clubs also competing on the day. The trio finished a creditable 8th out of 14 and were only 1 mark behind 1st place.

In addition to this result the regional team came 7th in the Cup tournament. Overall the girls had an excellent day and did not look out of place in the high level competition. This is promising for them and hopefully is an indication of what is to come from this talented trio.

 

The coaching team would like to congratulate every gymnast that took part on the day, well done!
