Silver Medals at Veterans Championships

Three members of 1066 Gymnastics’ adult class are celebrating some fantastic competition results. Claire McGreggor, Patrick O’Farrell and Beth Owen travelled to British Gymnastics headquarters at Lilleshall National Sports Centre in Shropshire to take part in the annual veterans championships. The competition saw over 250 entrants from 30 clubs come together and compete at the training centre where Great Britain’s top gymnasts have been training in preparation for the Rio Olympic Games, including Max Whitlock and Louis Smith MBE. 

On the first day of the event McGregor and Owen competed in the women’s pair acrobatics competition. They scored 25.300 for their dynamic routine and 25.990 for their balance routine. Their total of 51.290 secured them second place and silver medals. The next day they each competed in the women’s artistic intermediate competition and perform routines on floor, vault, bars and beam. McGregor scored 34.850 and Owen scored 38.300.
