Four CETC Gymnasts were selected to represent Scotland at The Loule Cup, Portugal, from 11th- 12th October- Ciara Donlevy, Caitlin O’Brien, Kelly Wynne & Madeline Smith. Unfortunately Caitlin was unable to compete due to injury.This was the first time Scotland had entered a DMT Team at this event - & the results were excellent!
The Scotland Women’s DMT Team (Ciara, Kelly, Kim (Beattie) & Morgan (James)- won the Team Bronze medal – an excellent result against stiff competition from the other participating countries .
Kelly made the finals in the Womens 'Junior' DMT, finishing in a very well- deserved 5th place- in her first International DMT competition for Scotland! Madeline executed two excellent passes in the preliminaries in the '13-14yrs' category,sadly not making the final, but finishing in a very respectable 12th place – this was also her first International event for Scotland.
Ciara performed well in the 'Open' DMT category prelims, securing her place in the Final, where she came 8th.
The CETC & other Team Scotland gymnasts were well supported by family & friends from home at the event – a fantastic experience representing Scotland at International level for all the gymnasts! Well done Team Scotland!
