SA Senior Artistic Gymnasts Alessandra Thompson and Angela Maguire travel to Wales, Cardiff to compete in the Welsh Championships 2014.
The Welsh Invitational is open to any club that wishes to compete and many gymnasts are competing to get scores for the Commonwealth Games 2014 as the competition is going to be used as a selection trial for the Welsh gymnasts.
Alessandra placed 8th and Angela placed 9th with both girls best apparatus on vault with scores of 12.8 and 13.55 respectively. This was a good result as it was both girls’ first ever Senior competition as they were Juniors in 2013. The girls next compete at the 12th African Gymnastics Championships in Tshwane, 26-30 March 2014.
