The Bermuda Gymnastics Association team continues its stellar showing in Orlando at the 2014 USAIGC World Championships.
A total of 10 gymnasts competed in the Bronze level division from Thursday to Sunday.
The top finish for Bermuda came from 10-year-old East End Primary student T'aja Williams, who won gold on floor and beam in the Bronze Diamond division event finals.
The Bronze Diamond division is new for 2014 — made up of gymnasts who achieved a 35.75 score or higher throughout the year. Jezhari Talbot had also qualified to compete in the Bronze Diamond round and finished with a 34.775.
Amari Trott, Sanaa Burgess, Daria Symonds, Brianna Ray, Yvé Smith, Logan Watson-Brown, Holly Wakely and Sasha Crumley participated in the Bronze all-around competition, with seven of the gymnasts qualifying on to event finals, and several having top-5 finishes.
Coaches Chris Nelligan and Molly Newbury are very proud of the team and their standout performances this year. Next week will see Bermuda gymnasts compete in the Silver, Gold, and Platinum divisions.
