Well-de­served medals

Harefield Gazette - - MOTORS -

ELLEN McCarthy and Mor­gan Pi­wowar led the way as Hilling­don Gym­nas­tics Club picked up 14 medals at the an­nual Poole Open Dis­abil­ity Com­pe­ti­tion.

They both scored wins for their team, who picked up a three gold, four sil­ver and seven bronze medals at last week’s contest.

The open re­quires gym­nasts to take part in three dis­ci­plines – tram­po­line, rhyth­mic and artis­tic gym­nas­tics – and Hilling­don had par­tic­i­pants in all of them.

McCarthy brought home gold medals in rib­bon and ball in rhyth­mic, and Pi­wowar earned his in rope.

The for­mer added to the ac­co­lades with a bronze in vault and sil­ver on beam in artis­tic, while the lat­ter earned sil­ver in ball in rhyth­mic.

Caitlin Hoile earned two sil­ver medals in rib­bon and ball rhyth­mic and floor, and a bronze in vault.

Til­lie Hewlett won sil­ver in tram­po­line, James Or­riss fin­ished with bronze on floor in men’s artis­tic, and Lewis McCarthy col­lected bronze on floor in the same cat­e­gory.

Head coach Karen De Sa said: “The de­vel­op­ment of th­ese gym­nasts is amaz­ing. Ev­ery time they per­form they get bet­ter and bet­ter. They de­serve the re­wards they are get­ting.”

Lewis Lock­yer and Dale Tyler also con­trib­uted to Hilling­don’s suc­cess­ful team.
