Gymnasts qualify for SA Nationals Gym matches


The elite rhythmic gymnastics club recently competed in the Central Gauteng Gymnastics Association district competition.

Level 5 elite gymnasts once again succeeded and qualified to compete in the Gauteng Provincial competition.

The competition was held at Kibler Park Recreational Hall.

Four of the gymnasts have qualified to compete in the SA Nationals Gym Games to be held on October 4 at Tuks University in Pretoria.

The qualified gymnasts were Amelia Shebe, Andisa Masikhwa, Stacey-lee Bailey, Chloe Leigh Callenkoppen and Gabrilla da Almeida as reserve.

Denise Marreiros of Elite Rhythmic Gymnastics Club said they were proud of them for their consistency and phenomenal results.

She said they will all receive their Central Gauteng senior colours.

“Rhythmic gymnastics is an ideal sport for girls in the development of hand or eye coordination. He teaches them to dance to music while manipulating devices like balls, hoops, ribbons, clubs and ropes. It’s an elegant sport with a lot of time spent stretching for flexibility and body strengthening,” Marreiros said.

Girls five and up who are interested are invited to attend and try a free class at Bracken Park Community Hall at Hennie Alberts and JG Strydom Community Hall on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
