Once again Spalding gymnasts were in a large competition at their academy as Arabian Gymnastic Club from Bletchley ran their annual European competition.
Gymnasts of all abilities took part from beginners to the advanced and were rewarded with medals in the top four of their age group. Everyone gets a certificate for taking part and also other little gifts. Throughout the day the atmosphere was terrific, helped along by music and the encouragement of the audience. The kitchen was busy with parents helping out, another way of raising funds so the academy can maintain a high standard.
Spalding gymnasts performed outstandingly and came away with medals in every round, a total of 100-plus gold, silver, bronze and fourth places.
