National Gymsports Successes
Congratulations to those members of our Gymsports team who last week represented the Waikato Region at the National Gymsports Championships held in Auckland. Special congratulations to Alex Burne who won a national title by being the Overall Winner at Step 10. In doing so, Alex won the vault, was 2nd in the beam and uneven bars and 3rd on the floor. Then, in Saturday competition for the individual apparatus titles, Alex won the vault to take a Gold medal and finished 2nd in the uneven bars to take a Silver medal. These were outstanding results at a national event when gymnastics has strong participation throughout our country.
Congratulations too to Hannah Wilton who also did extremely well to finish in 5th overall at Step 9. Laura Burne won a Bronze medal in the Step 7 all-round competition and Grace Christie won a Bronze medal in the Step 7 uneven bars. These were also excellent results in such top-level competition.
