Whissendine Primary School gymnasts shine on county stage
Young gymnasts from Whissendine Primary School turned on the style to pick up team prizes on the county stage.
The Leicester-Shire and Rutland County Gymnastics finals took place at Oakham Artistic Gymnastics Academy last Wednesday, where Whissendine claimed victory in both the Key Steps 1 and 3 finals.
Both teams had four gymnasts competing in three events – floor routine, body management routine and vault.
The teams returned to school dripping in medals for both team and individual performances.
The Key Steps 3 team, have been particularly successful throughout their primary school careers and the Key Steps 1 team look set to follow in their footsteps.
A school spokesperson said: “Not only are they team-mates, but also a group of close friends which has contributed to their success.
“The school gymnasts, led by Mrs Glassford, have worked so hard over this year to ensure they were in tip-top shape for the finals.”
