A Wellsway student has made a great start to her 2016 season as a rhythmic gymnast, bringing home a bronze medal and trophy from an international competition.

Competing as a senior for the first time, Gemma Lewis took part in the International Rhythmic Gymnastics Tournament Carramba Cup in Katowice, Poland, in early March.

During the three-day contest, which attracts clubs from all over Europe, Gemma performed five routines in the elite senior section in the Ribbon, Ball, Hoops, Clubs and Free categories. She narrowly missed out on the silver medal and trophy by just 0.100, but secured the bronze. She also came second on Hoops, third on Clubs and fourth on Ball.

Gemma is a Team Bath athlete and recently switched gymnastics clubs to train with Esprit as she works to qualify once more for the British Championship Series at Liverpool’s Echo Arena in July and to develop four new senior routines.
