Garioch Gymnasts performed exceptionally well at the recent Voluntary Level 4, 3 & 2 Competition held at the Bells Sports Centre in Perth.

All nine gymnasts from the Garioch Club, who train at the Garioch Community Centre in Inverurie took a medal or rosette back to the Garioch. Three of the gymnasts taking part also qualified to represent Scotland at the British National Finals in November. Layla Williams, Brooke Masson and Teagan Batho will travel to Guildford with their coach to Cathy Osborne to take part in the British National Championships for their age group. A remarkable achievement, we are very proud of them and all the girls who participated in the weekend’s competition. Hard work brings rewards.
