Young Londonderry Gymnast Excels at Winter Challenge

Youthful Londonderry gymnast Sophia Fonseca wasn’t taking any prisoners at the recent Winter Challenge event at the Chelsea Piers Sports Complex in Stamford, Conn. The 10-year-old Level 4 standout – who attends Londonderry South Elementary and competes for Phantom Gymnastics in Hampstead – collected three first places and a couple of thirds to boot at that major  competition.

She registered the winning all-around score of 37.825, and firsts on the balance beam (9.80) and the uneven bars as well (9.650). Fonseca’s thirds were nabbed on vault and floor, and those superb performances helped her Phantoms’ team to a first place score of 190.50 as well.

“My wife, Sonya, and I are very proud of Sophia,” said her dad, Carlos.
