Falkirk Infinity Display Team and Grangemouth Community Gymnastics Club’s display team, Rebound, were among the 270 gymnasts and nine clubs taking part in the Showcase

Despite a very early start, the girls were well prepared to take the stage on the official gymnastics floor in the Glasgow Hydro.

It was an amazing opportunity for all those taking part as experiences like this are few and far between.

The Falkirk Infinity Display Team performed their Jive Bunny routine to an audience of over 1000 gymnasts and guests, which was undoubtedly a daunting occasion but they performed well and were unphased by the huge size of the Hydro, or the fact that they were performing on the floor that had witnessed the Men and Women’s European Champions earlier in the week.
