Nationals 2012

We have now added the results from this year’s national championships, as well as adding a new section onto the media page for the photos from the trip up as well as all sorts of things that went on there. We hope that you enjoy it all.

Nationals was a great experience for all of those involved. This year the club has done very well, coming away from the event with plenty of medals. We had a team of twelve gymnasts who went up to compete in Blenheim at the Artistic Gymnastic Nationals, and another team of six gymnasts who went to Dunedin to compete at the Aerobic Gymnastic Nationals.

From the artistic team we had two Mens Artistic gymnasts who competed at Nationals. Sean Burrows and Slade Smith are the first males to represent Southland at Nationals in over five years. Out of the team of twelve, six of them won medals.
