Gymnastics Success at the South East Wales Schools Gymnastics Tumble & Vault Championships 2022!

28 Jan 2022

On Friday 28th January, two of our incredibly talented Year 5 gymnasts represented Penygarn Community Primary School at the South East Wales Schools Gymnastics Tumble & Vault Championships, which was held in Kestrel Gymnastics Club, Chepstow. Both pupils competed in the Under 11’s age category. They had to perform three different tumble runs on the floor and two different vaults over the box. They both performed their tumbles and vaults beautifully, not only doing themselves proud but the school incredibly proud too. One of our gymnasts scored so highly on her tumble and vault performances that she placed first overall, earning herself the title of ‘South East Wales Schools Tumble & Vault Champion’ of the entire under 11’s section of the competition! She will now go on to represent both Penygarn Community Primary School and the South East Area at the Welsh Finals, which will be held in March at the Sport Wales National Centre in Cardiff! We are wishing her lots of luck and can’t wait to hear all about it! It is lovely to see competitions taking place again and we are looking forward to what the rest of the school year brings for our pupils and their sporting activities.
