The 25 gymnasts, aged 5 – 11 years, started training in artistic gymnastics this year, and have shown a lot of progress during this short time.
The competition comprised of floor routines and vaulting. The floor routine involved a sequence of moves such as forward rolls, cartwheels and walkovers. Squad gymnasts also completed advanced tumbles such as handsprings and roundoff flicks.
