Five named for Gotland

The Bermuda Gymnastics Association has named a squad of five athletes to compete at the NatWest Island Games in Gotland, Sweden, in June.

The BGA held its Island Games trials, attended by international judges, for more than a dozen gymnasts at their Southside training centre last month.

Max Blakeney, 13, Chantae Wilson, 13, Anna Francoeur, 14, Taj Lowery, 14, and Gianna Webbe, 15, reached the qualifying standard and will compete at the biennial competition, which will run from June 24 to 30.

It will be the first time competing at an international competition for the five gymnasts.

“The BGA is excited for the future, as the number of those interested in participating in gymnastics continues to grow,” read a BGA statement.

“There are a number of fundraising events scheduled over the next two months in order to raise funds for travelling to the Island Games.

“We welcome the support of the Bermuda community to assist in these efforts.”
