MOUNT PEARL, N.L. —

Eight gymnasts from Clarenville Velocity prevailed this past weekend at the Campia Dream Big Gymnastics meet in Mount Pearl, capturing medals in their competition at the event.

Each girl performed a routine in each event — floor exercise, balance beam, uneven bars and vault. The scores from all four events are totalled for an all-round score.

The pre-cadet girl’s routines are scored and awarded gold, silver or bronze depending on where they have scored: gold: 9+, silver: 8-8.99, bronze less than 8.

This is the second year of competition for most of the older gymnasts, and the debut for the three younger gymnasts and Rayah Vokey.

The girls represented Velocity Gymnastics well, with many podium finishes.

They will now work to improve their routines in preparation for the next competition to be held in St. John’s at Cygnus Gymnastics Training Center March 9.
