Raising the bar

Belgium’s best gymnasts are competing in the European Championships of Artistic Gymnastics in Poland this week. The team is made up of 15-year-old Fien Enghels from Geraardsbergen, the country’s junior champion (pictured above), Maellyse Brassart, Jade Vansteenkiste, Jonathan Vrolix, Jimmy Verbaeys and Luka Van den Keybus.

In last year’s European Championships, in Glasgow, the Belgian team came home with three medals. Nina Derwael took gold on the uneven bars and silver on the balance beam, with Axelle Klinckaert taking bronze for her floor routine. Both women have been ruled out of this year’s event in Szczecin because of injury. The competition finishes on Sunday.
