Celebrating Women in gymnastics in 2021

Gymnastics Ireland closed out the week of International Women’s Day celebrations for 2021 with a great response and engagement from fans.
In Ireland, gymnastics is a sport with 85% female participation and female influence across all departments. The below graphic shows the stats for 2021...
With the aim to inspire and to celebrate girls and women in our sport, we gathered a few stories from our membership who spoke about their experience as women in our sport. Coming from different places and backgrounds, these ladies contribute to the development of gymnastics passionately, embracing female participation in sport.
Participation Manager, Aimi Baker said “International Women's day is so important because it gives us a chance to appreciate the big things girls and women have done in our sport. It was a privilege for us to be able to share some stories of our inspirational members”
