Jemima Taylor is celebrating yet another fantastic achievement at the European Youth Olympic Festival inMaribor, Slovenia returning home with a Bronze Team Medal. Representing Great Britain again this year, Jemima who was part of a three gymnast team for GB, achieved 16th place out of 83 competitors in the individual all round competition. Jemima also managed to secure a top 8 position in the vault and floor finals.
A huge congratulations to Ema Kandalova who achieved bronze medal position in the overall individual competition.
28 July 2023 – In the vault final Jemima performed two very good vaults – a full twisting Yurchenko, and her second vault – a straight Yurchenko. These ‘world class’ vaults were performed by all the finalists. Jemima positioned 9th in the final on vault (as there were two gymnasts who were joint 8th). The difference in the scores from 3rd position to 9th was extremely close.
Congratulations to Ellie Lewis and Ema Kandalova who also made the individual apparatus finals on the Uneven Bars. Ellie positioned 6th and Ema 7th in this event. Well done TEAM GB!!
29 July 2023 – On the final day of the artistic gymnastics competition, Jemima performed her floor exercise again in the final. It was a fantastic personal performance – full of originality, acrobatic and dance skills and beautifully choreographed throughout. This event was closely fought by all 8 finalists. Jemima positioned 4th overall. The difference in scores from gold position to 4th was only 0.9 – a very close margin! Well done Jemima we are so proud of you!
Many congratulations from everyone at City of Newport Gymnastic Academy to Jemima and all the gymnasts and TEAM GB Coach Tracey Skirton-Davies.
