The National Artistics Gymnastics Championships were held yesterday at the Bocci Dromo Hall at Cottonera Sports Complex. The Berline Floor donated by the FIG was used for the first time and other equipment was supplied from the National Sports School.
Four clubs participated and competed against each other. The level of the competition was very high and the gymnasts impressed all those present. Besides, it was clear that a new generation of elite athletes is coming forward and in the future we are in for many surprises. The majority of medals, 70 in all, were awarded to the athletes from Gymstars, followed by 27 to Chun Gymnastics/ISC Gymnastics Club and finally 17 were awarded to Acrobatic Jumpers. The athletes that represent Malta in International events, once again reconfrimed their place at the top of the ranks and showed that they are getting well prepared for the GSSE to be held in Iceland in 2015. Suzanne Buttigieg, Sana Grillo and Claire Azzopardi showed their high level in the FIG Junior Section.
The athletes participating in the event was high in number, and they were all well supported by their clubs who co operated together to make the event a successful one. One must not forget to mention the parents who supported the event with great enthusiasm.
A big thank you goes to the Federation, clubs, judges and coaches for the organisation, the KMS for their great support, and the presence of the Hon. Chris Agius and Mr Mark Cutajar who visited the competition and were pleasantly surprised at the great ability of the athletes. The next event to be organised will be the National Rythmic Gymnastics Competition which will be held at the same venue on Sunday 21st December 2014.
