3RD AEROBIC GYMNASTICS INTERNATIONAL CLUB MEETING
EISENBERG, GERMANY 2007
In the Group1 Competition (12-14 years of age) 32 gymnasts were entered.
Competing for Heathrow were Emily Keane, Tyler Ansel, Emma Bevan, Siana
Williams and Ella De Cruz. In Great Britain Siana, Emma and Ella would
normally compete in the National Aerobic Competition which does not require
compulsory elements in their routines. However in this event the girls
had to be entered into the FIG Level (International Code of Points). The
girls had to make some changes to their routines prior to this competition
and had to include the required 4 compulsory elements. First it was Siana
Williams to show her routine. She performed a good routine scoring all
of her elements but was understandably nervous and slightly lacking confidence.
Siana received a total score of 14.350 (23rd place). Second on the floor
was Emma Bevan. Emma was really exited before this competition and worked
very hard on her routine. Emma is still very new to the sport and had
only competed once before but was very determined to accomplish a good
result in this competition. She performed a solid routine scoring all
of her difficulty elements and had good showmanship throughout the routine.
Emma scored a total score of 14.60 (21st place). Next up was Ella Decruz.
She performed her routine with very good presentation and tried very hard
on all of her technical skills, however Ella did not receive value for
one of the compulsory elements which affected her final score. She had
a total score of 14.15 (25th place). Next on the competition floor was
Tyler Ansel. All last year Tyler was competing in the NAC and only just
moved in to the FIG in January, so this was also her first FIG competition.
She had a completely new routine made for this year and worked hard on
perfecting it. Tyler looked very confident on the competition stage and
had very good presentation. She had scored 7 out of 8 difficulty elements
but was not precise enough on her execution, scoring a total score of
14.25 (24th place). The next competitor from Heathrow was Emily Keane.
Like Tyler, Emily had just moved in to the FIG at the beginning of this
year and had a new routine made for this competition season. Emily was
much exited to compete in this event and worked very hard on all aspects
of her routine. She performed very confidently with good charisma and
lots of enthusiasm. She had scored all of her difficulty elements and
we feel was little bit underscored on her artistic. Emily received a total
score of 15.05 and took 14th place.
Comments: This type of competition is very important to clubs. They have
a good atmosphere and promote long term friendships between different
clubs around the world, as well as allowing competitors to see the progress
of the sport and the improvement in their performances. Next weekend we
have Britain’s first National competition this year, the Alex Strachan
Cup, and so the international club meeting was a good chance for us to
compete in preparation for this event. We are very pleased with the results
of all our gymnasts and would like to congratulate everyone on their success.
Also a special thank you to our parents and supporters who traveled with
us to this competition.
