After the sensational result obtained by the very young team Beatrice Vialardi, Helena Garavaglia, Maggie Castello, Giada Garrone and Sara Moreschi of the section of Feminine art from the La Marmora Gymnastics Society who had graduated interregional champion in the band Gold 3Afor gymnasts between eight and ten years old, took part in the Italian Championship in Jesolo.
The hopes of ranking well were well founded but the techniques Martha Beraldo and Aurora Sellone they were very worried. In fact, one of the two spearheads of the team, Beatrice, who had been away from training for a week due to a very annoying flu, was in any case eager to compete and support her teammates with her presence, not so much Helena who had already participated with her last year in the National championships but Maggie, Giada and Sara at their first experience.
The competition started very well with the beam exercise without any falls and only a few wobbles to always take into account in this apparatus. In the continuation of the competition some mistakes were made but overall each gymnast played her part. The sense of group that was breathed was important and not only because the encouragement that each one gave to her partner while she was performing her own exercises gave the teachers the demonstration that the work done in the gym of group cohesion, support and participation is been profitable.
Outside of the sporting result is belonging to the group, the certainty of being supported by teammates and teachers in the most important moments of sporting life is the most important goal to achieve. This national championship saw these determined budding gymnasts conquer the fifteenth position with a score not far from the final reserved for the best ten teams and a personal result on Beatrice’s parallel bars, albeit with an error, and on Helena’s free body, scores among the best of the competition in their bracket. This result makes not only the technicians Marta, Aurora and the choreographer Alessandra proud, but above all the technicians of the other sections of La Marmora, all the gymnasts, the managers and myself as President of this important association. Congratulations to all.
