De MOND celebrated success at the first regional gymnastics grades to be held in Jersey.

The competition was open to all local gymnastics’ clubs, with UK judges flown over to assess those taking part. De Mond Academy came away with 108 medals and all nine possible title trophies.

Coach Tory De Mond was delighted with the results.

‘The atmosphere was fantastic and [it was] so lovely for the gymnasts to show off all their hard work to their families and friends, who supported from the sidelines,’ he said. ‘We are very proud of each of them.’

Grade 6 saw a clean sweep for the De Mond gymnasts with Hannah Munro taking the overall trophy and her team-mates, Emilia Painter and Bea Williams, taking silver and bronze respectively.

The grade 5 girls’ title was awarded to Evelyn Trehiou, with close competition from team-mate Liora Church, who took the silver.
