Heathrow Invitational 2014:

The 2014 Heathrow Invitational Competition saw over 130 gymnasts from around Great Britain, 7 from Berkhamsted Gymnastics Club, compete for the “overall” and “apparatus” medals available to them in their relevant level and age category. 

BGC’s Level 4 gymnasts: Sadie B, Lizzie R, Amber P, Meghan R and Gabby C all competed in the 10/11 age category, the largest of the day with 28 competitors.  The girls competed well, with Amber, Meghan, Sadie and Lizzie finishing in 7th, 8th 17th and 23rd respectively.  Amber placed 3rd on Floor with team mates Meghan and Sadie close on her heels placing joint 4th.  Gabby also came 2nd on Floor, along with 2nd place on Vault and 1st place on Bars, her consistent scores saw her reach the podium winning Bronze overall.

BGC’s Level 2 gymnasts: Poppy W-L and Amelia E also had a brilliant competition.  Poppy won Bronze overall and placed 1st on Vault, 2nd on Bars and 4th on Floor.  Whilst Amelia won Silver overall and placed 2nd on Vault, 3rd on Bars and Beam and 1st on Floor. 

General Gymnastics Floor and Vault Competition:

An amazing result for Berkhamsted Gymnastics Club at the General Gymnastics Floor and Vault competition which was held on Sunday 8th June at Pipers Vale Gymnastics Club in Ipswich. We fielded 2 of the 8 teams that were entered into the Level 2 competition and walked away with 2 out of the 3 team medals available. Team A won Silver missing out on the Gold by only 0.05 of a mark and Team B won Bronze. The hard work both the gymnasts and coaches have put in leading up to the competition most definitely paid off.

Amelia Ranked Number 3 in Great Britain:

12 year old Amelia Evans travelled to Birmingham on the 17th May as part of the East Region’s Grade 6 National Final Team.  After qualifying for the Team in first place Amelia knew she had a chance at an individual medal if she could keep her nerve.  The East Team was scheduled to compete in the first of three rounds, with 11 teams competing for the Team medals and 46 gymnasts competing for the individual medals.  Amelia and the rest of the East Team competed well, all achieving a clean competition.  At the end of the first round the Team were in second place and Amelia’s score placed her in first place individually.  It was a nervous 2 ½ hr wait for the next 2 rounds to end.   When the final scores were called the East Team had managed to secure Team Bronze with Amelia taking the Individual Bronze medal.  Her high scores placed her first on Vault, third on Beam and fifth on Floor.

Hertfordshire Grades:
A team of 15 girls all passed their grades with flying colours and 13 achieving distinction. For some of the gymnasts this was their first taste of a big competition so they could easily have been phased by the occasion but Lily Gildsmid, Isabelle Gallagher and Sofia Logo kept their nerve and delivered clean routines to achieve distinction at Grade 14. In the same grade Katy Caseley was unlucky to miss out on a medal but came a very credible 4th place while Eliza Atkins and Macy Catlin also put in sound performances to achieve distinctions.
At Grade 13 Amy Barrett earned a distinction and the quality continued with distinctions awarded to Rhea Pereira and Sadie Burt who competed at Grade 12. Sadie was placed 3rd overall and took the bronze medal for the club.
At Grade 11 all Berkhamsted gymnasts achieved podium positions and gained distinctions. Lucy Phippen was placed 3rd in the age 12 plus category, Lizzie Rowlands was 2nd in the 10-11 category and Amber Penaliggon took first place overall to win the county title.
Grade 10 saw Charlotte Chrispin, Maya Withey and Sofie Parkinson finish 2nd, 3rd and 4th overall respectively.
The medal winning gymnasts go forward and represent Hertfordshire in the East of England Regional Finals in April.
