GRGA 20th Anniversary Open Competition
It has been 20 years since Head Coach Sally Holmes hosted her first Competition in the sport of Rhythmic Gymnastics on the Rock. The GRGA has slowly over the years been growing steadily and is now one of the most established and successful sport in Gibraltar, having had a Rhythmic Gymnast represent Gibraltar under the Great Britain Flag at the 2012 Olympics and 5 gymnasts at the Commonwealth Games.
The GRGA have also had many Elite Gymnasts win at the prestigious British Championships, plus an overwhelming amount of medals won in the Andalucian Spanish Circuit.
The Gibraltar International Open Competition took place on Saturday, in which they have been commended for a sensational and very well organised competition and all our local Gymnasts have shined and once again made Gibraltar proud.
