Superstars of Gymnastics

On Saturday 23rd March 2019, Deal Parochial took a small KS2 group of keen gymnasts to attend the afternoon session of the Superstars of Gymnastics, an exhibition event at the O2 Arena.

It was fantastic to see so many world class gymnasts take part in this exhibition competition, where they were marked on their entertainment factor, as well as their technique. The men did routines on the high bar, the parallel bars and on the floor, whilst the women did vaults and performed on the beam.

Simone Biles and Max Whitlock were part of the judging panel for most of the afternoon, but did perform routines on the floor and the pommel horse respectively, much to our delight.
