Hertfordshire Level 6 Competition

  • Print

This weekend SAADI had two groups of gymnasts competing in the Hertfordshire Level 6 competition on Sunday. The competition involved clubs from all over the county, with a total of 43 gymnasts competing across different age categories. SAADI was represented in the age 9/10 category by Ellie, Isabella and Natasha. Ellie and Isabella were competing in their first external competition for SAADI and performed all of their routines well, Ellie achieved the highest overall score for SAADI and Isabella got the highest SAADI score on beam. Natasha was able to build on her experience of winning Hertfordshire Grade 2 earlier this year to perform some excellent confident routines and claim a bronze ribbon for level 6 bars.

In the age 11/12 competition SAADI was represented by 5 gymnasts: Emma, Lara, Katie, Juliet Annabel. Abbie was unable to compete due to injury but she came along to support her team mates and contributed to the great team atmosphere the girls had in the competition. The girls performed really well, SAADI competition highlights included Juliet's 4th place on valut, Lara's 6th place on bars, Katie's 6th place on beam and Annabel's 6th place on vault. The best all around SAADI score was achieved by Emma Afari, who won the bronze medal overall, a bronze ribbon on vault and came in fourth place on Bars and Floor.

Each club is responsible for organising one county competition per year, and this weekend's competition was run by SAADI. Special thanks go to all those parents and coaches who helped with scoring, music, announcing, judging and score sheet selling, all of whom were crucial to the smooth running of the competition. Thanks also go to our coaches who took care of the girls during the competition, and of course the gymnasts themselves who all represented us really well.
