This week, gymnasts from Abbey Gymnastics C.I.C will be heading out to Dornbirn, Austria for the 16th World Gymnaestrada, the biggest gymnastics’ festival in the world.
Travelling gymnasts from the club have been working hard over the last few months learning their own clubs performance and will be performing as their club but also together with 29 other teams as part of Great Britain and with all other teams as part of the World.
Abbey Gymnastics C.I.C will start with the opening ceremony on Sunday and will be marching into the stadium in their team colours in front of a standing crowd of 25,000 spectators.
The club will also be performing as part of team Great Britain on Monday and Tuesday.
