Emma Slevin

  • Galway gymnast Emma Slevin capped a fine week in Buenos Aires with a fifth place finish in the women's balance beam.

    Slevin says she can scarcely believe a week that saw her compete in four separate finals.

     

  • A Galway woman has become the first Irish female gymnast to reach an all-round final at the European Gymnastics Championships.

    Emma Slevin finished 27th with an overall score of 50.432 in qualifying in Basel, with the Swiss event also serving as an Olympic qualifier, but only for those gymnasts who didn't compete at the 2019 World Championships.

    The 18-year-old from Galway ranked 26th in the vault, 29th in the asymmetric bars, 39th in the beam and 51st in the floor exercise.

    The men's and women's all-round finals take place on Friday, with the apparatus finals set to take place on Saturday and Sunday.

  • Galway teenager Emma Slevin will make history by competing in today's all-around final at the European Gymnastics Championships — the first Irish woman to qualify for a senior European final.

    The 17-year-old, who represents Renmore Gymnastics Club, scored 50.432 in Wednesday evening’s qualification round in Basel, which was enough to secure her place among the 24 finalists.

    Today's final, which begins at 12.45pm, will be broadcast live on RTÉ 2.

    Galway’s Emma Slevin finished eighth in both the vault and the uneven bars yesterday, having performed outstandingly to qualify for the final. Slevin achieved a score of 12.833 in the vault and 12.600 in the bars, with solid clean performances. 

    Fifteen-year-old Slevin has had one of the most gruelling schedules at the Youth Olympic Games this week, having competed in six out of the seven days of competition so far, and she is taking it in her stride, “It’s tiring but sure everyone’s the same – none of us are used to it. But it’s a good challenge for all of us.”

    Competition continues for Slevin on the 15th October with the finals in the balance beam.
