There were two overall champions crowned through Georgia and Brooke, with Georgia also taking home the trophy for the highest score of the entire competition, a huge 14.6 on beam.
This was a massively successful trip for all these girls, aged just 9-15 years old, who not only won medals but have also had a fabulous experience to travel with their gymnastics. We are all extremely proud of how they approached this trip and the fantastic results achieved at this competition.
