Donegal's Finesse Gymnastics Club competed at the GymStart Challenge last weekend in DCU Sports Complex, Dublin.
The GymStart Challenge is a relatively new event run by Gymnastics Ireland and it gives gymnasts an opportunity to execute gymnastics floor skills appropriate to their ability levels.
The 30 participating gymnasts from the club brought home an amazing 1 Gold, 7 Silver, 13 Level Seven, 4 Level Six, 3 Level Five, 1 Level Four & 1 Level Three GymStart Challenge level medals.
Each gymnast had to perform a routine encompassing seven out of ten perfect elements in order to be awarded a medal, and all 30 of Finesse's participating gymnasts certainly did themselves, their parents and their club really proud.
This year saw over 700 gymnasts attending the event with another 700 expected at the Cork event in two weeks time.
Congratulations and well done to those participating gymnasts at the event. These included: Adele King, Kayleigh Gallagher Kenny, Ellie Maloney, Nicola Canning, Sequoya Mc Gettigan, Julia Migut, Ella Martin, Gráinne Mc Cann, Lucy Boyle, Amy Russell, Mia Boyle, Neasa Coyle, Amy Timoney, Brooke Mc Cauley, Caoimhe Carlin, Ita Mc Gee, Grace Coyle, Demi Crossan, Aoife Diver, Tamika Armstrong, Susie Lavender, Caoimhe Gallagher, Niamh Gallagher, Sarah Healy, Lauren Mc Menamin, Aoife Haslette, Rihanna Friel, Sophie Mc Kenna. Yetis Bella Gallagher and Amy Bovaird.
A special congratulations must also go to two senior members of the club who acted as national assessors at the event. Well done Ellie King and Rachel Canning!
Coaches: Meganne Herron (Head Coach), Linda Bennett and Connell Herron.
