This month the Gymnastics Federation of Portugal has pulled their Olympic weight, hosting major international trampoline, tumbling and DMT competitions leading up to the Rio Games next month. The ScalabisCup, a popular annual event was held in Santarem June 31-July 2, and the Coimbra GymFest and World Cup were held in Coimbra on July 8-9.
Over 500 gymnasts from 18 countries participated in the ScalabisCup this year, with a large number from the home country. The results are posted online for each discipline, and we are lucky enough to have video of the top three trampoline routines in the Open category, too. Thanks to Kayleigh McCarthy, a national level trampoline gymnast and coach from England, for the video she offered (*taken from the stands). I think we’ll make her a new contributor! You can follow her on Twitter and Instagram.
