Norwegian Gymnasts welcomed at Falcon Spartak
11th June 2018
During the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd June 2018 we were delighted to welcome 3 Rhythmic and 4 mens artistic gymnasts from Norway for a competition as preparation for their participation in the 2019 Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi. There are very few clubs in Norway offering competitions to these gymnasts so they have to travel to where ever they can to get competition with other similar gymnasts. We had a great competition and saw some excellent work from all the gymnasts.
The Norwegian coaches were keen to learn more about gymnastics in Great Britain and informal meetings were held to discuss the disability and Special Olympics training programmes. The gymnasts were given an invitation to take part in the Poole Open competition in October as further preparation for World Games.
A very friendly and most enjoyable weekend for everyone.
