Gymnastics Extravaganza for Boys
Monday, 03 October 2011
Bolton School students were extremely fortunate to witness a gymnastics extravaganza first thing on Monday morning.
Paul Hockwart (Director of Coaching at Bury Gymnastics Club) came into to a Year 7 Assembly to promote the sport of gymnastics. Accompanying him was a Great Britain gymnast called Mason Whealing. Mason demonstrated a variety of floor work and trampette exercises, including round-offs, handsprings, flic-flacs, somersault with a twist, and a spectacular double somersault to finish. The complete control, timing and fluency at which these skills were performed, was breathtaking at times.
Mr Johnson, Head of Boys' PE, thanked both the coach and gymnast for giving up their time to promote gymnastics in time for the start of the Year 7 Gymnastics Club on Friday and the Gymnastics Competition.
