President of the Jamaica Gymnastics Association Nicole Grant was full of praise for the team that recently participated in the Pan American Championships in Peru where Jamaica’s men and women each earned two spots in the 2019 Pan American Games.

At the championships that ended on Sunday, Jamaica’s women placed 11th in the competition while the men’s team was 13th overall. Individually, Reiss Beckford was 13th in the Men’s Artistic Gymnastics while Danusia Francis was 12th of 82 competitors.

MacKenzie Robinson was 35th overall while Kiara Aiesha Richmon was 48th while among the men, Steven Lewis was 28th and Caleb Faulk was 33rd.

“We are excited by the news that our girls competed well and qualified for two spots at the Pan Am Games in 2019,” Grant said.

“We are indeed grateful to both male and female teams for their dedication and hard work and are very elated for their achievements as this is a tremendous accomplishment which will definitely show that Jamaica’s gymnastics is growing.

“This is the very first time we competed with two full teams at a senior international event and ultimately qualified for the Pan Am Games, for the first time, as well.”
