Eight Year 7 boys made it through to this year's gymnastics
final, which was held in the boys' gymnasium. Performing in
front of the entire year group, the boys held their nerve to
produce some stunning floor exercises. Three boys proved
themselves to be on a slightly higher level than the other
competitors and it was only the tiniest of detail which split the
top three. They were:
Bronze medallist - Sammy Gatenby (7c)
Silver medallist - Sam Bowden (7c)
Winner - Cian McMahon (7e)
The Headmasters awarded certificates to all boys that took part
in the final and the winner, Cian, received a trophy.
Mr Johnson, Head of PE in the Boys' Division and one of the
judges said: "This year the standard was exceptionally high,
making it extremely difficult to split them into a rank order.
In the end, there were three outstanding gymnasts, who
performed with control, tension and fluency. The eventual winner,
Cian McMahon, demonstrated considerable technique and ability
during his sequence, performing a round off with a triple flic flac
and was a deserved winner.
My congratulations go to all of the boys for making this year's
final particularly special."
