The medals were awarded for position on each piece so there was an opportunity for the gymnasts to pick up as many as four medals in each age group and category.

Arun’s best performer was Isabel Foster, competing at intermediate age 11. Her fantastic efforts earned her three gold medals for her brilliant performances on vault, beam and bars and a silver for her lovely floor routine.
