A gymnastics group wowed Commonwealth Games crowds at the weekend – during the Netball.
Gymtasia Evolution, part of Acrobay Gymnastics Club, have been invited to perform during breaks in the action at a series of events during The Games. They made their debut on Saturday at the SECC, performing during the Netball half time breaks, and were met with rapturous applause from the 3000-strong audience. TV viewers also saw their performances on the BBC live streaming of the event.
The team, based in Dalgety Bay, is made up of some of Acrobay’s top competitive gymnasts and coaches and includes members of the Scotland Squad and Scottish and British Champions and medallists among its numbers.
Head coach Suzanne Fraser said: “It’s a huge honour to have been asked to perform at The Commonwealth Games; we’re all really excited about it. Acrobatic gymnastics is a relatively new discipline and isn’t yet a Commonwealth sport, so it’s a great opportunity to showcase it to a wider audience and show people what it’s all about. The team had a fantastic time performing and judging by the response they got, the crowd seemed to love them. We can’t wait to do it all again next week.”
Gymtasia Evolution will also be performing at the Commonwealth Games during the Weightlifting and Badminton on Thursday 31st July, Squash and Table Tennis on Friday 1st August, Powerlifting on Saturday 2nd August and Badminton and Squash on Sunday 3rd August.
