RG Event Finals Results at the CWG

The Rhythmic Gymnastics competition at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games came to a close yesterday with the Individual Event Finals being contested. Canadian Patricia Bezzoubenko, who many believed would equal the 6-gold medal feat that Alexandra Orlando completed in 2006 fell short winning five golds and a bronze. Bezzoubenko took the titles with the Hoop, Ball and Clubs however it was Welsh gymnast Francesca Jones who ended her career on a high taking out the Ribbon honors. Jones and Malaysia's Wong Poh San won the silver and bronze medals respectively with the Hoop, whilst with the Ball Jones added another silver with her compatriot Laura Halford earning the bronze medal. With the Clubs, Francesca Jones topped Cyprus' Themida Christodoulidou for the silver medal.

Jones and Lim Named Flag Bearers for Their Respective Countries


Congratulations to Francesca Jones who will be representing Wales in Rhythmic Gymnastics at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow who has been named as the Flag Bearer for the country at the Opening Ceremony. Jones who is set to retire after Glasgow and is readying to compete in her third Commonwealth Games was shocked by the announcement. For more information see the article on Wales Online at http://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/other-sport/commonwealth-games-2014-gymnast-frankie-7473992. Image and below quote from Wales Online. 
Team Wales Chef de Mission Brian Davies said: “We are delighted to announce Frankie Jones as our Team Wales flag bearer for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
“Frankie is a perfect choice having won a silver medal in Delhi, competed at the London 2012 Olympic Games and now aiming for another medal in Glasgow.
“This will be Frankie’s third, and final, Commonwealth Games which is a huge achievement in a sport dominated by young talent.
“There is no doubt the whole sport in Wales has grown off the back of her personal success and without her we would not have had such a thriving gymnastics team here in Glasgow.
Earlier this month, Singapore announced at a Flag Presentation Ceremony that Heem Wei Lim is set to carry her nation's flag at the Opening Ceremony. An image from the Presentation and a corresponding article can be seen at: http://www.redsports.sg/2014/07/02/teamsg-flag-presentation/
