JFKS Gymnasts win 8th Place at the Bundesfinale JTFO – Gerätturnen 2017
The JFKS Boy Gymnastics Team represented Berlin at the Bundesfinale on May 4, 2017 after winning the 2017 Berlin finals of “Jugend Trainiert für Olympia – Gerätturnen 2017 – WK IV” in March.
The team with Cristina, Ella, Finley, Jonah, and Konstantin competed with the top fifteen school teams of Germany, and the JFKS students finished with a fantastic 8th place, defeating seven Bundesländer, among them Niedersachsen, Schleswig-Holstein, Thüringen, and the Saarland. Like in previous years, the first and second place went to sports schools in Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria.
The seventh graders were overjoyed to finish among the top ten, and the happy faces were proof that their results had by far exceeded their expectations. Congratulations to all and a big thank you to the coaches!
There is a film by a Berlin TV station available here featuring the competition and the gymnasts. See also previous post “High School Gymnasts win Gold and Silver at “Jugend Trainiert für Olympia”
