Gym team off to US


Share post:

Twelve gymnasts will be displaying their talent and trying to win silverware for Barbados at the Crown Of The Carolinas Meet in the United States this weekend.

During an interview at the Wildey gym base this week, head coach of the national women’s gymnastics team Alison Jackson told SATURDAY SPORT it was the contingent’s ninth time competing in the ten-year history of the meet and they always looked forward to it.

She added that the meet was also a good choice of competition since it followed the Americas system.

“We follow the US system in Barbados – as well as everyone else in the Caribbean who does gymnastics – so competing in the [United] States is very important. So we know where we stand against the Americans who created the system that we compete in,” she said. (RG)
