Remacle earns medals at Moscow meet
By Diana RemacleTen year-old Marjorie Remacle has once again started competing in gymnastics meets for the 2021 season.
Palouse Empire Gymnastics hosted their annual “Sweet Stuff” meet in the form of a gym battle over this past weekend in Moscow, ID. Social Distancing and other COVID related precautions were taken and the girls were all more than ready to take to the floor.
Two USA Gymnastics judges, one in physical attendance and a second available via a tablet, were there to officiate the event – even though it was not a sanctioned meet.
Remacle achieved her highest scores yet, smashing almost all of her previous scores from previous years. First was beam, with a 9.2, this score was outstanding but did not surpass the Great West Gym Fest meet from 2019. Next was her uneven bars routine, with a 9.7, Remacle smashed her earlier scores and also earned a first place medal with this skill. Following that, Remacle competed her Floor Routine and received a 9.35 for her efforts. Like bars, Remacle outperformed her previous scores and earned a another first place medal. Finally, Remacle went to the vault, arguably her best apparatus. Remacle scored 9.65, which crushed her previous score by over a tenth of a point and earned a third medal for first place. Finally, Remacle also scored an overall 37.9 (another high score) and earned another first place medal, bringing the total medal count to four.
Our next gym battle is scheduled to be a home meet at 360 Gymnastics in Clarkston, WA next weekend.
