Last Saturday Abril García Muñoz, our 4th grade student became the winner in level 3-gymnastics (10 and 11 years old) in the Community of Madrid Winter Championship of the Madrid Gymnastics Federation. She was awarded with a gold medal for her landing performance on the floor. The next level is the Olympic category.
Abril has been practicing gymnastics since she was six years old. She used to watch championships with her grandfather and said she wanted to practice this sport, although no one in the family had practiced before and they were not followers of it.
At the age of 8 she presented herself at a professional club, she was admitted and now trains at San Blas club 4 days 11 hours a week.
At SEK-Ciudalcampo, she plays volleyball matches on Saturday either before or after training gymnastics for three hours, showing great sportsmanship and hardworking spirit.
