National Teams Competition 2011

8 gymnasts from Old Bawn competed at last Sundays National Teams competition.   Each year the top teams in Ireland compete for this title.  Old Bawn performed great and only narrowly missed out on the bronze by just a mark, bettering the bronze medal team on three apparatus.  Unfortunatly some uncharacteristic errors on beam kept them from the podium.

However this competition is also a qualifier for selection to the Irish National Squad and also for National All Around and Apparatus Finals.  Due to the strong individual performances of our 8 gymnasts, we are very hopeful that the girls will be well represented at both.  Watch this space!!

Gymnasts who represented Old Bawn:
Beth Gillmor
Ali Kavanagh
Ciara Nixon
Julie Sadlier
Elaine Hayden
Lauren Reddy
Shauna Kelly
Katie O’Hara
