One of my highlights in the Team Event is the French team taking a historic Silver in the European Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Peter Capaldi’s hometown of Glasgow. The team consisted of 2018 European Floor Champion Melanie, 2018 European Beam Bronze medalist Marine and fellow 2018 European finalists Juliette, Lorette and Coline.Here are their performances:

At the Worlds 2018 & 2019, they have finished 5th which is a good result for France overall.

Melanie, Juliette, Marine, Louise and Lorette after qualifying France to the Team Final at the Worlds for the first time since 2007.

My final highlight has to be the support the French team give in completion. My pick is when Melanie won the AA Gold in 2019 as she, Lorette who finished 8th and their watching team mates Marine and Coline got emotional and embraced each other. Its a heartwarming moment of 2019 & problem one of the best moments overall.

Thank you to the French Gymnastics Team for being brilliant and hope things continue to shine for you.
