Heathrow International Competition
Another fantastic weekend for our girls at the Heathrow International.
Team mates Emily James and Sorina Nistor along with coach Laura James attended the Heathrow International Competition with fellow team Bulmershe Gymnastics Club.
The girls were both excited and nervous to be getting back out on the floor. With an astonishing number of countries and gymnasts in attendance the girls knew that the competition was going to be stiff.
But both girls powered through to gain silver medals in Group 2 Individual for Sorina Nistor and Group 1 five teams for Emily James and her Bulmershe team mates.
Coach and Judge Laura was excited to work along side such a high calibre of judges and commented "Another FANTASTIC competition experience for myself and the girls! I was both nervous and excited to work alongside such highly experienced judges and it was a brilliant opportunity. I am so pleased to see the girls doing so well, they deserve everything they achieve, the hard work and dedication they have for their sport is admirable! And I am immensely proud of them both!"
As the competition came to a close the audience were treated to an additional performance from the Brazilian firecracker that is Lucas. After attending the World Championships and bringing home second place for his country he flew to the UK to attend and compete at the Heathrow. A fantastic experience for gymnasts, coaches, judges and spectators.
Phoenix Dance & Gymnastics look forward to taking the team to the Heathrow International next year !!
