5th June 2018, 12:30p.m. | The Floor
5th June 2018; National Indoor Arena, Dublin: Gymnastics Ireland’s headline participation event - ‘The Floor’, took place for the third consecutive year on Sunday 3rd June in the National Indoor Arena. The flagship display event comprised of 22 teams from 15 Clubs with over 400 gymnasts participating and a great crowd of spectators out in force to support. For this event Gymnastics Ireland brought the X-Factor to 'The Floor' and created a show with increased investment in stage lighting, video recording, sound production and a fantastic MC in the shape of Shay Byrne from RTE.
Four main Merit Awards were presented on the day by Gymnastics Ireland Chairman Ger Rellis. The awards showed special appreciation for some performances that stood out and celebrate participation, personal achievement, fun, friendship and team work. The awarded display teams were as follows...
- Best Costume: Gymstars GC
- Best Theme/Concept: Finesse GC & Carrigaline GC
- Best Choreography/Content: Douglas GC & the Display Squad from Arabian GC
- Best Entertainment: Cork Acro GC
The Floor was a proper show in every way and saw a wide variety of performances from some of the best display teams in the country. Feedback has been great and it is clear that the The Floor 2018 was a huge success and was greatly enjoyed by the performers and spectators. A video playlist of all the individual team performances from this year will be released in the coming days in our website and YouTube Channel.
Attention now shifts to our flagship competitive event the 'National Series Super Championships' that will be held on 30th June & 1st July in the National Indoor Arena, where you will see the best of the best across all ages and levels in every gymnastics discipline. Tickets will be available online in the coming days. We hope you will join us for this exciting event.
The Floor will return in 2019 bigger and better in the National Indoor Arena, Dublin. Will you and your team be ready to take to 'The Floor'?!
