Donegal’s Finesse Gymnastics Display Club participated in the Dublin Gym Fleadh which is hosted annually by Mid-Sutton Gymnastics Club at UCD’s Sports Complex last Saturday.
Finesse gymnasts have been attending this event almost every year but this year for the first time the club brought two teams there.
Both the Senior Display Team and the newly formed Junior Squad showcased their Gymnastics for All (GFA) routine and were awarded gold medals for their neat and flawless performances.
GFA is a discipline of gymnastics that includes choreographed dance routines, sports acrobatics balances and gymnastics floor skills.
Both teams from Finesse executed these perfected skills which they have been working on with precision and care. They performed alongside teams from all over Ireland and the UK.
Our 17 Senior Display Team gymnasts performed a modern twist on a Charleston theme, while our 13 Junior Squad gymnasts performed a Doll routine, where they demonstrated what little girls’ dolls get up to when they are asleep.
A successful and worthwhile day was had by all, making it a joyous end to the club’s end of season of events. But the gymnasts will not put their feet up for very long. From the 10th – 14th August the club will hold a GFA Summer Camp in Bonagee Hall. Details of which can be found on the club’s website “finessegym.wix.com”.Tags:
