UWCSEA East Dragons Gymnastics Invitational, 27 and 28 February 2016
By Nicha Thongtanakul, Student and WAG Level 7 Gymnast, Dover Campus
On the 27-28 February, the UWCSEA Dover Phoenix Gymnastics team competed at the annual UWCSEA East Gymnastics Invitational. It was a huge competition, with over 10 clubs or schools from different countries participating, including local high performance club Prime gymnastics Club.
UWCSEA Dover had teams enrolled from levels 2 through 8, and all 8 teams brought back trophies for gold through bronze, with many medaling gold through bronze in individual events as well. This competition was a great opportunity to compete new skills, with level 8 gymnast Audrey Dumas competing the Tsukahara vault, and level 7 gymnast Sophia Jelfs twisting on floor, and competing the back handspring on beam, both for the first time.
We will meet many of these teams again at SEASAC, taking place at UWCSEA East on 19-20 March. Good luck to all gymnasts, and congratulations for a brilliant competition!
