Last week, GYMBO said farewell to one of its long-time gymnastics talents and a member of the GYMBO Selection Team, Elizabeth Hess. Ellie had to return to the USA with her parents following end of their duty at IC School in Lebanon.

Ellie joined GYMBO from its outset and quickly established herself with the elite in the GYMBO Selection Team. She represented IC School at the METS Interscholastic Schools Competition in Jordan in 2012 and 2013, taking 1st place this year, in the U10 Girls category, in both Floor Exercise and Vault.

GYMBO had a little gathering for Ellie at the club, so that her colleagues, friends and trainers could bid her farewell and good luck. She cut a cake and managed to hide her tears in the midst of good luck cheers and hugs from everyone present. She was kind enough to remember her trainers - Rabih, Charbel and Svetlana - with souvenir photo frames that she did especially for the occasion.

We wish you all the best Ellie. GYMBO will miss you dearly but will always be your second home in Lebanon.
