Boys' High Gym Champs

For the first time the annual Boys' High School gymnastics championships were staged on Olympic standard apparatus...horizontal bar, parallel bars, vaulting horse, and tumbling mats.

Watched by a good crowd of pupils and parents, the competitors displayed a high standard of gymnasties, especially in the A grade events in which top local Bruce Horsburgh, who gained fourth place in the recent national championships, emerged victorious.
