Springfit gymnastics and trampoline club took some of it’s members to a local competition in Guildford and walked away with two gold medals!
In a busy month for the club, hosting their own events and performing at local displays, the girls didn’t get much time to practice their routines but still impressed the judges enough to earn the top spot on the podium.
The Olympic themed event was hosted by Flair club who invite hundreds of competitors from all over Surrey and the South East to pit themselves against their peers in age and ability categories. The competition consists of an individual floor routine where gymnasts perform ten skills linked by dance moves and includes back flips and somersaults as well as balance moves, handstands and shaped leaps.
They are also required to perform a vault, where the Springfit competitors chose the high difficulty level of a “handspring”, going completely upside down as they fly over the apparatus. The gold medallists got exceptionally good scores for this move and had the other gymnasts commenting on how daunting it is to be going against members of Springfit Gym club, who have a reputation of producing excellent results for the fun and friendly recreational classes they run.
