Gymnasts return for ‘Chicago Style’ meet

Bermuda’s travelling gymnasts turned in another pleasing performance at the ICI ‘Chicago Style’ meet in Chicago over the weekend.

A week after competing in New York, an Island team went to the Windy City to take part in a competition labelled “the largest women’s gymnastics invitational meet in the world”.

It was a meet which the local girls had entered for several years, this time with the incentive of pushing for a place on the team which will compete at this summer’s Island Games.

In the Level 8 category for those 14 and over, Zantae Dill placed sixth in the vault (8.65 pts), sixth on the beam (8.65) and ninth on the floor 8.85.

Samantha Soares scored 8.3 on the vault in the Level 8 for 13-year-olds and in Level 9 for the same age group, Sadia Wilson scored 8.85 on the vault (15th place), 9.125 on floor (13th); Danielle Wall 8.85 on floor and Clara James 8.5 on floor.

Level 9 for 14 and15 year-olds saw Gabby Vincent score 8.75 on the vault, 8.775 on floor (12th); Tabytha Hofheins score 8.8 on floor (11th); and Sydney Mason 8.05 on vault and floor.

In the Level 8 12 and under category, Anna Francoeur posted 8.725 on the balance beam.

Morgan Beckles had hoped to travel with the team but is still recovering from a wrist injury.

Bermuda's gymnasts who took part in the weekend's competition in Chicago, claimed to be the 'largest women’s gymnastics invitational meet in the world.'
