Glacier Gymnastics is hosting the Judges Cup this weekend with about 150 gymnasts performing at the Nelson club.

Including athletes from around the region, boys and girls hit the mats, bars, beams and vault in the interclub event.

With the main goal of giving gymnasts the chance to perform – showcase their abilities, without pressure of being ranked or judged, many were participating in their first meet. Judges gave positive comments aimed at building confidence in competition and all were awarded medals and ribbons.

Located at 719 Vernon Street, action continues into this evening with athletes back for a second day starting at 9 a.m. Sunday morning.
