Orkney Gymnastics Club Hosts Inaugural Junior Competition

That the Parliament congratulates Orkney Gymnastics Club on hosting its first home floor and vault competition on 15 December 2019; understands that 166 gymnasts from across Orkney entered the event, which was held at the Picky Centre in Kirkwall; notes that the competition was open to junior gymnasts of all ages and abilities, from pre-school beginners through to teenage competitors, and that most of the entrants were taking part in a competition for the first time; pays tribute to the judges, coaches, helpers, parents and club committee for organising the event and running it smoothly, acknowledging that their hard work and dedication has given many young gymnasts across Orkney the opportunity to experience the many benefits of competitive sport, including having fun in a positive sporting environment, socialising with their friends and developing important life skills; congratulates all of the competitors on their efforts, particularly the winners of events, and recognises that Caitlin Watt was the highest point scorer of the day and the overall winner of the Ishbel Mackay Memorial Trophy; hopes that this is the first of many successful competitions that Orkney Gymnastics Club will host, and wishes everyone involved at the club a successful year ahead.
