The trampoline season has been a huge success for Abbey Gymnasts. The Irish National Championships were held in Limerick on 18th May and attended by Alex McMullan and Breanna Courtney. With fabulous performances from both Gymnasts we are delighted to report that Alex won the National Championships title for Boys age 11 & 12 Intermediate Level and Breanna won the National title for Girls age 11 & 12 Intermediate Level with both gymnasts taking the lead by more than 2 marks!!
The following week both Gymnasts travelled to Rathdrum to compete in the Irish Grand Prix. This was another competition in which gymnasts had to qualify from a previous competition. Both Alex and Breanna performed well being among the youngest in the group of 12. The Grand Prix is a tough event with all gymnasts competing against each other regardless of age or gender. The top spots were taken by more senior gymnasts with Alex finishing in 4th and Breanna in 8th place.
Both gymnasts look forward to training hard over the summer in the hope of travelling to Portugal in September to compete in the World Cup.
