P1130021 p1

On the Weekend of the 17th of October 2015 gymnasts from West Street Gymnastics Center, Gorseinon traveled to North Wales to compete in the Acrobatics Gymnastics Welsh Championships.  The standard of competition was high but the West Street Gymnasts won 15 Gold, 2 Silver and 2 Bronze medals. Sophie Bevan, club coach and administrator, said “The competition was strong but every member of the West Street Squad won a medal and 18 gymnasts qualified to represent Wales in Holland in November”.  Lisa Thomas who leads the coaching team commented “Standards get higher each year and our gymnasts have to work hard to maintain the level required, this is a good start to the competition season but gymnasts can’t rest on their laurels as now they have to focus on British competitions which start in a few weeks time”.  The club which runs on a voluntary basis would like to thank parents, local businesses, the local council, the club committee and all supporters for their help and backing over the past year.
