The 2nd Annual Fermanagh and Omagh Gymnastics Championships, which attracted entries from 325 young competitors from across the district, took place recently.
The competition, organised by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, brought together male and female gymnasts aged 5 to 17 who train at any one of the Council’s four leisure complexes, to compete in the closely contested Junior and Senior events.
Eimear Shannon, who trains at Castle Park Leisure Centre, Lisnaskea, was named Senior Champion while Niamh Smyth, who trains at the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum, Enniskillen, was named Junior Champion.
Speaking about the competition, the event organisers said: ‘The introduction of gymnastics classes at Omagh Leisure Complex has made gymnastics accessible right across the district helping it to grow. It was wonderful to see so many young gymnasts from across the area coming together to enjoy and compete in the sport at the first district championships.
The level of skill and sportsmanship on display was exceptional and the coaches from should be extremely proud of every single competing gymnast.
None of this would be possible without the support and dedication from the parents and guardians and we would like to express our thanks to them also.”
The Fermanagh and Omagh Gymnastics Championships took place on 1 and 6 April in Castle Park Leisure Centre, Lisnaskea and the Bawnacre Centre, Irvinestown respectively.
