A record entry of over 300 gymnasts took part, the largest entry to-date at the Garioch Community Centre.

It involved the club’s Glitter Girls, as well as gymnasts from Banchory, Balmoor, Balweariem Beacon, Aberdeen, Deveron, Dundee, Forres, Inverurie Gymnastix and Tyock.

As well as their medals, the overall winners went home with tiaras and crowned the “queens and princesses of the Glatterball.

A total of 71 medals and seven tiaras were won by the Garioch Glitter Girls, and they particularly dominated the 6/7 beginners group, winning every team and individual medal.

They also claimed all of the individual medals in the 12+ advanced group.

Janine Robertson, club manager and sports officer, said: “We want to say a massive thank you to the visiting clubs for coming along and also our parent committee.

“A huge amount of effort went into the planning and running of the event from our Volunteer Parent Committee and we are extremely grateful to them and their team of volunteers, including some of our gymnasts who were not competing.

“The day was a huge success. Thanks to them and our coaches, who as usual put in that extra bit of effort to ensure the gymnasts can be the best they can be.”

The club will be running summer camps for beginners, novice and performance gymnasts – all of which are open to non-club members.
