Although the event – named the European Invitational – was at Spalding, it was hosted by Milton Keynes based Arabian Gymnastic Club.

Each level had the name of city, chosen as Barcelona, Paris, Rome, Moscow and Athens, with the five pieces of apparatus being bars, beam, vault, floor and trampette.

The Spalding gymnasts were in sensational form, walking off with a staggering total of 104 medals, of which 30 were gold.

Every gymnast was given a rosette to hang on their wall and also a certificate to mark the occasion.

Spalding’s Alec Harding said: “This was the best competition Spalding have been in and will be talked of for a long while.

“Thanks to all the gymnasts and coaches for all their efforts, we will be welcoming Arabian back next year for their annual roses comp.”
