Team Ireland place 2nd at Rushmoor Rosebowl 2013

Ireland claimed team silver at the Rushmoor Rose Bowl on Saturday 26th October 2013, thanks to a fine all-around performance from the five-strong team.

The team contained 3 of Salto Elite Girls Squad gymnasts Casey Bell, Nicole Mawhinney and India McPeak, with Nicole and India having recently returned from the World Championships in Antwerp.

Ireland recorded the best total score for an Irish international WAG team against very strong competition, with Casey Bell putting in a great performance to break the 50 point mark and claim a personal best of 50.3.

Ireland’s interest in the competition continued Sunday, where Nicole Mawhinney (6th) and Casey Bell (4th) competed in the vault final, while India McPeak (6th) joined Casey Bell (4th) in the A-Bars final.

National Performance Coach and Salto Elite Girls Squad coach, Kim Kensett was delighted with the strong team ethic that Ireland displayed over the course of the two days, saying: “the team has shown the ability this weekend to work together towards a common vision showing great potential for our upcoming junior and senior teams. So proud of our girls.”

Congratulations to all teams involved!!
