On Saturday 30th August, BGS headed to BBC for the GPS lead up Championships. This is a pre-Championships competition designed to give all the gymnasts a taste of competition and also allow the boys to qualify for GPS Championships. All our gymnasts went into the competition with a good mindset and I believe we can take a lot away from our performance.

Division 3 were very supportive of each other and worked well as a team to take out the morning session. I think all the boys who were new to the sport had a great time and I am happy with where the boys are heading. With little depth, Division 2 needed to show some class and did enough to take out the middle session. A few hiccups along the way, Division 2 gymnasts can take a lot out of this comp, and by the end of the competition they were a lot more cohesive as a group. Division 1 were favourites and made sure they got the job done with no injuries taking out the final session.

We now turn towards preparing for the main day on October 25th and with lots in between (including our BGS Championships), the boys will need to work hard in all the areas the coaches have pin-pointed to ensure we don’t get complacent and can do our best for BGS.
