JFKS Gymnasts Win Silver in “Turnwettkampf der Berliner Schulen 2014”

Gymnastics Competition of Berlin Schools 2014

Feb. 26, 2014 – Twenty-five JFKS elementary students participated in the “Turnwettkampf der Berliner Schulen 2014” at the Sporthalle Schöneberg. With great results – one of the younger teams won silver, and one of our youngest gymnasts achieved the highest overall score (tieing with a girl from another school) among all third graders and younger.

It was a very exciting morning for all of them with close to 300 elementary school children from over 30 Berlin schools competing in the event. All boys and girls performed a compulsory routine on five events – horizontal bar, vault, balance beam, parallel bars, and floor. Additionally, each team showed a synchronized floor exercise.

Congratulations to all JFKS gymnasts – beginners to advanced – on the following results:
