LASSWADE-based gymnasts were part of the first Scottish team to win the British TeamGym Championships earlier this month.

Two teams of gymnasts travelled from Scotland to Gloucester to compete in the British TeamGym 2011 Championships.

TeamGym involves a trio of disciplines – floor routine, tumbling and trampette. It is an exciting and spectacular event to watch, providing an incredible display of gymnastic prowess to expectant audiences.

Both teams – Spartans Primary Boys (9-12 years) and Midlothian Spartans Mixed Seniors (over 16) – had earned a place at this event by qualifying in the Northern Qualifying competition held at Meadowbank Stadium in March.
