The Dynamo girls travelled to Malta to take part in the GymStars International at the end of December, along with coaches Kerri Upton, Karen Paling, Sarah Sharkey and Lana Harry.

The Dynamo girls team travelled out on Friday to get in a training session before the competition began on Saturday. Staying in the Gymstars own hostel above the gym, the team settled in and enjoyed a trip to the local Christmas Market on Friday evening after their training session which familiarised the gymnasts with the new environment.

Competition began early Saturday morning, with the FIG Junior Competition. Leah Mitchell finishing in 4th overall, just missing out on a podium finish. Team-mates Tayah Askham finished 5th, Ella-Beattie Edwards 6th, Jessica Wells 7th, Ellen Martin 8th and Olivia Essex in 9th. Dynamo also entered teams in each event with Dynamo A consisting of Leah, Tayah and Ella winning the FIG Junior Category and Dynamo B, Jessica, Ellen and Olivia placing 2nd.

Team-mates Katie Davis finished 4th, Tiger Weidner 5th, India-Rose Harper 6th, Lucie Russel 7th, Saffron Moore 8th, Alexandra Gilling in 10th and Holly Shepherd in 12th. Dynamo A, consisting of Sydney, India, Tiger and Alex finished 3rd overall, with Dynamo B, Katie, Lucie, Saffron and Holly in 4th.

Many of the girls qualified for the apparatus finals on Sunday. Leah Mitchell competed in Vault, Bars and Beam Final. Tayah Askham competed in Vault Final as well as gaining the Silver on Bars and Bronze on Beam. Ella-Beattie Edwards also medalled in 3rd place on floor, with team-mate Ellen Martin also competing in the Floor Final.

Lucie Russel won Gold after a beautiful floor routine, alongside India-Rose Harper who also competed in the floor final. Katie Davis also competed in the Beam Final with Alexandra Gilling in Bars Final.

Following the apparatus finals the girls enjoyed a trip into Valletta on Sunday afternoon, followed by a party with all the competing gymnasts, officials, and hosts in the evening before flying home after a successful and enjoyable trip.
