Northern Ireland sent Teams of Male and Female Gymnasts to the 2014 Celtic Cup in Scotland. This is an annual event for up and coming gymnastics stars from the Celtic Nations. Two Abbey Gymnasts represented Northern Ireland at the International. Twelve year old Aaron Nutt competed on Floor, Rings and Vault in the Northern Ireland Minor Team. The Team finished in 4th place, just outside a podium placing however, the Abbey and NI Team coaches were delighted with Aarons performances, finishing as the top scorer on Floor and Rings from the Northern Ireland Team! This was Aarons first International experience and hopefully the first of many.
Fourteen year old Hannah Morrison competed on Floor Exercise, Balance Beam, Vault and Uneven Bars as part of the Northern Ireland Junior Team. Hannah achieved new personal best scores on Vault and Beam which not only helped the Team to win the Bronze medal but also secured her a place on the Irish National Team for European Championships.
