Celtic Cup Winners

The Celtic Cup and Home Nations Competition at the Welsh Institute of Sport were a fabulous success for Esprit.

With gymnasts competing for both Wales and England, we were always in with a good chance of some success, but a Gold in the team competition, Gold in the Seniors and Gold in the Junior sections, were quite exceptional.

Esprit's delegation consisted of:

Esprit Rhythmic coach Rachel Haines and head coach Deb Hows, who attended as Judge and Head of delegation for England.

Esprit's competitors included:

Jade Faulkner - Senior Gymnast representing England

Laura Halford - Junior gymnast representing Wales

Ellie Morse - Espoir gymnast and England debutant


Ellie Morse's selection to the England team was proven by an impressive 6th place debut in the Espoir section.

Jade Faulkner then won bronze in the team event and Esprit's first
Gold medal, as top individual in the Senior event.

Jade was followed by Laura Halford, who went on to win Esprit's other two Gold medals, with Gold in the Junior section and Gold for Wales in the team event.
