Gymnastics Ireland: Salto claim FIG National Team Championships


Yet again City of Lisburn Salto Gymnastics Club claimed the coveted title of Irish FIG National Team of the year yesterday at the WAG National Team Championships in Dublin. The competition, which was held in the new Janz Gymnastics Club full time facility, played host to seven teams and a number of individuals competing. The individual gymnasts must compete in order to qualify for the National Apparatus Finals in 2012.

This was a full FIG event, with the standard being quite high. Both judges and gymnasts who have been to Worlds or Europeans were present including Sophie McCoo from Abbey Gymnastics Club who most recently competed in Tokyo. South Dublin based club Excel placed second whilst Galway based club Renmore placed third, both of these clubs host full time facilities. Salto also won the title last year.

  1. Salto 179.990
  2. Excel 163.995
  3. Renmore 154.665
