Today, four of WGC’s Mens Artistic Gymnastics squad competed at the South East regional qualifiers for a place to do battle against the rest of Britain.
In the first round we saw George Ferris and Alfie Baker competing for places in the level 2 category where George landed 4th spot and a space to represent the region and Alfie marginally missed out with a solid performance coming 6th as a reserve.
In round two George Harvey had a terrific day finishing 2nd and securing a spot with silver in level 4 category and Dan ‘The Man’ Vallance triumphantly stepped up to earn a place in the level 3 category, an age group higher than his own, to win gold.
We couldn’t be prouder of these young gentleman who have represented our club and community impeccably today – they really couldn’t have worked any harder or been more courteous and obliging to all.
As always, a big thank you to our friends at Pegasus Gymnastics Club who hosted the competition in their stunning facilities and a huge congratulations to all the clubs that competed today. Its always a pleasure to compete with you and we look forward to working along side you leading up to the nationals in Birmingham later this year.
We must also thank the coaches and parents who sacrificed their summer and worked tirelessly in preparation for todays excellent results.
One final thank you goes to coach Rafe who helped judge on the day – doesn’t he look dapper!
Please do give all four boys and the coaches a pat on the back if you see them in the gym and fingers crossed for some more splendid results when they come up against the rest of Britain.
