Gymnastics: Barry YMCA are the real Gymstars in Malta.

FOUR Barry YMCA gymnasts recently arrived back in Wales following an exciting outing to Malta where they competed in the Gymstars competition.

Georgia Cooper (13), Olivia Parry (12), Chloe Ross (11) and Morgan Horne (10) travelled to Malta with their coach Sara Harper to compete at the event and take part in a week long gymnastics camp.

During the competition the girls competed against Maltese gymnasts as well as youngsters from other countries including Netherlands, Germany and the Isle of Man.

The gymnasts had an enjoyable and successful time during the competition.

Georgia, Olivia and Chloe all competed in the same level.

Georgia was victorious claiming the overall gold medal.

She also became the floor champion, and placed second on vault and third on beam.

Her training partner Olivia narrowly missed out on an individual all around medal placing fourth.

However, following a very solid beamroutine Olivia found herself on the rostrumwhen she placed second in the beam event.

Young Chloe Ross had a positive competition trying out a number of new skills while competing against gymnasts of an older age.

Morgan, 10, had similar success to her older clubmates.

She has been working hard over the year to build up her skill levels and this paid off when she placed second on beamand second on floor.
