OVER 40 gymnasts from across Gwent attended a competition held by The Association of Inter-Friendly Gymnastics last month.

The five piece competition at Kestrel gymnastics club in Chepstow on November 30, saw gymnasts aged five to seven from the Academy of Gymnastics, Cwmcarn Gymnastics Club and Kestrel Gymnastics Club compete on floor, vault, bars, beam; as well as range and conditioning test.

For many of the gymnasts, it was their first competition experience with many walking away with medals ribbons and trophies.
