Renmore Gymnastics made history this month when four of its members were selected for International competition to represent Ireland at the 2013 Celtic Cup Championships in The Isle of Man on the 11th of May.
All selected gymnasts represented Ireland in the Minors Category across both the women’s and men’s teams. The Irish WAG Minors competed with great focus and determination resulting in some of the strongest Irish women’s artistic performances to date for this event. PBs were achieved for many of the girls across all apparatus and despite their young age the team looked strong and showed much future promise. Renmore Gymnastic’s Ellen Hynes and Old Bawn’s Shauna Kelly returned this year to the team bringing both experience and determination. Joining them on the Irish team for excellent debut performances were Sugarloaf’s Niamh Hutchinson, and Renmore gymnasts Emmeline Anghileri and Amy O’Neill. All team members competed very well, Emmeline placed 5th overall also achieving the second highest floor score of the competition and collectively the team counted just one fall throughout the competition. In the Men’s event Renmore Gymnastics’ Patrick Flanagan had a fantastic debut into International competition, hitting PB’s on the parallel bars, rings and floor exercise.
Last year Renmore Gymastics qualified their first gymnast into this event and to return this year with four members was a very proud moment for the club and evidence that their sporting strategic plans for developing both a high performance programme and athletes to match is having huge success. Well done to all and keep up the good work!!!
