23rd March 2018, Doha, Qatar; Irish Gymnast Rhys McClenaghan secured 4th place in the Pommel Horse final during the 11th FIG Artistic Gymnastics Individual Apparatus World Cup in Doha, Qatar, scoring 14.333 in what has no doubt been a great week for Gymnastics Ireland on the world stage.
Team-mate Adam Steele came 12th on Pommel Horse in qualification with a score of 13.600 earlier in the week.
Commenting on the achievements CEO of Gymnastics Ireland, Mr. Ciaran Gallagher said:
“Congratulations to Rhys and Adam on a great performance in Doha. Adam pulled out a solid performance in qualifications in what was his World Cup Debut. Rhys was unlucky today not to finish on the podium for Pommel Horse given that he qualified in 3rd place. His 4th place finish as one of the youngest in the competition is still a huge achievement in what was a top-drawer field of competitors all with their eyes on Tokyo. Congratulations to the entire delegation.”
