RATH­DRUM GYM­NAS­TICS club have seen lots of competition ac­tion in the past two weeks.

Two weeks back they en­tered 13 tram­polin­ists into the Ir­ish Gym­nas­tics All-Ire­land na­tional fi­nals in Newry.

Seven were medal­lists in their age group and lev­els, Ali Pat­ter­son 3rd, Andrew Traynor 2nd, Ciara Flood 3rd, Ellen Pat­ter­son 1st, Lau­ren Kelly 3rd, Sarah Burke 2nd and Re­becca Con­nor 3rd. Eleven of the thir­teen from the club were placed in the top ten.

Last week­end saw the first tram­po­line competition of the new sea­son with Rath­drum host­ing the competition and en­ter­ing 20 tram­polin­ists and win­ning seven gold, three sil­ver and four bronze medals.

Five of the tram­polin­ists, Ciara Flood, Izzi Kelly, Emma Byrne, Ruth How­ell and Andrew Traynor, have moved up to a much more dif­fi­cult level and their per­for­mance was su­perb. Ellen Pat­ter­son got one of the high­est scores of the day and along with Jade Dug­gan per­formed a five som­er­sault rou­tine which is their best per­for­mance to date. Many thanks to the club tram­po­line coaches, Jade Dug­gan, Louise Wal­she and the head coach Les for all their work.
