Lowery captures hat-trick of medals

Taj Lowery claimed three of the Bermuda boys' gymnastics team's six medals at the Mid Atlantic Gymnastics Invitational in College Park, Maryland, at the weekend.

Lowery, of Warwick Academy, claimed gold in the vault at the level six competition, while also garnering medals in the floor exercise where he finished ninth, and a seventh in the high bars.

The top ten in each discipline received a medal.

Bermuda's other medal winners included Max Blakeney, who helped himself to a bronze medal in the level six vault competition, Jaden Malpas, who finished ninth in the level four high bars, and Ty Dunlop, who finished sixth on the vault in level five.

Magan Outerbridge, a Bermuda boys' gymnastics coach, has praised the performances of the Island's team.

Outerbridge said: “I think this year we had a pretty successful meet. The boys went in with an open mind and aimed for their personal best.

“Every one of our boys worked hard and did their very best and was proud of themselves. I was very impressed and can't express how proud I am of the team.”

The meet, which is held at the University of Maryland, is one of the area's top annual competitions.

Bermuda, who competed at the event for the first time last year, have been working on their routines since the start of the year.

Bermuda's team: Taj Lowery (Warwick Academy), Max Blakeney (Saltus), Niyan Outerbridge (Harrington Sound), Ty Dunlop (Somersfield), Thomas Gesick (Somersfield), Jaden Malpas (Saltus), Kai Lowery (Warwick Academy), Cole Packwood (Saltus) Jordan Trimarchi (Saltus), Jacob Madeiros (MSA Academy), Nizeko Outerbridge (Harrington Sound).
