The Springfit Invitational floor and vault gymnastics competition was held on the 17th of November at Oakwood Sports Centre, Horley. The afternoon was a huge success where many children received gold, silver and bronze medals for their floor routines and vaulting expertise.
The Olympic discipline of gymnastics ‘floor’ involved routines of varied ability and tempo, performed to music ranging from classical numbers to James Bond! The judging panel were thoroughly impressed with the poise and grace of the gymnasts, some competing for their very first time. All of these brave debutants overcame their nerves and found the confidence to perform in front of the large audience.
Seven year old Georgie Dumper from Crawley was one of these who, despite some initial wobbles, found her stride and provided a storming routine and ended up taking first place in her grade 1 category for 7-8 year olds.
This category saw the closest results ever produced at a Springfit competition, with the bronze medal scoring 14.25, silver 14.30 and Georgie’s well deserved gold getting 14.35!
The feedback from parents showed that it was a great day for all those competing and spectating, and the children clearly loved seeing each other’s routines and admiring gymnastics as a great sport to be involved in.
The Springfit team would like to congratulate all who took part and made the day such a success. The results are shown here.
