We are big fans of the gymnastics. It’s a breathtaking sport showcasing strength, grace and beauty. There will be two disciplines at the Commonwealth Games, Artistic and Rhythmic, both to be held at the Glasgow SECC. The Artistic competition runs over five days, with individual and team medals both being awarded. Apparatus for male athletes includes the Rings, Pommel Horse, Floor, Vault, Parallel Bars and Horizontal Bar. Rhythmic Gymnastics is only for female athletes, who compete in hoop, ball, clubs and ribbon events for both individual and team medals.
Our hot favourites? We’ll be watching out for the British 14 year old Rebecca Downie from Nottingham who won a silver and a bronze medal at the commonwealth games 2006 in Melbourne. Rebecca is keen to add a gold medal to her collection.
