Dundee Gymnastics Club 2K enjoyed a very successful weekend at the 2015 Scottish Gymnastics Women's Artistic Championships! The competition was held on 21-22nd of February 2015 in the Bell's Centre in Perth. The first day of the Championships is the All Around and Team event. DGC2K were delighted to take Silver in the Team event beating off stiff competition from City of Glasgow and West Lothian teams but narrowly missing out on Gold to Largs.
Sofia Ramzan (14, Grove Academy) performed four beautiful routines, achieving a personal best score of 49.8 and taking Silver for the second year in a row in the All Around Junior age group. Sarah McKenzie (13, Dundee High) and Hayley Bell (13, Menzieshill High) also competed well in this category placing 3rd and 6th respectively. Rosa Holm-Huxley (12, Harris Academy) was a strong representative and contender in the Espoir section.
The second day of the Championships is the finals for the individual apparatus.
In the Junior finals Sofia Ramzan had an excellent competition winning Silver for Beam and Asymmetric Bars, joint silver for Floor and Bronze for Vault, and managed to secure her highest overall score yet of 50.25. Sarah McKenzie also performed well to achieve joint silver for Floor, silver for Vault and bronze for Floor.
