Success for Dumfries Y Gymnasts at Dundonald

Over 40 gymnasts from Dumfries Y Gymnastics Club’s Floor and Vault and Development squads travelled to Kilmarnock in May to take part in the Dundonald Gymnastics Club Floor and Vault Competition. This is the Club’s largest competition entry to date and the first external competition for many of the gymnasts.

Head Coach, Steven McKinnel, said “The gymnasts have worked extremely hard over the last few months and we were pleased with their performance at the competition.”
