Y tîm arddangosfa gymnasteg

Mae'r ffotograff hwn o 1892 yn dangos rhai o aelodau benywaidd Gymnasiwm Aberhonddu gyda'u hyfforddwr, Mr Hawthorn. Roedd Mr Hawthorn wedi symud o Lundain i Aberhonddu yn 1888, lle ddechreuodd ar ei ddyletswyddau fel hyfforddwr i'r gymnasiwn. Fel seiclwr brwdfrydig, cymerodd ran mewn ras seiclo o'r Fenni i Aberhonddu - pellter o 20 milltir a gyflawnwyd ganddo mewn awr a 23 munud ar deiars seiclo caled.

Roedd rhai o'r merched yn y ffotograff wedi'u henwi: Misses C Evans, E Price, E A Bodman, M Davies, M Evans, A T Thomas, M L Lewis a G Evans.

Roedd wyth o'r merched hyn yn perfformio ymarferion ar gloch y bar sengl a dwbl fel rhan o'r arddangosfa a roddwyd ganddynt.

GYMNASTIC COMPETITIONS AT BRECON

On Friday evening last, at the Gymnasium, Llanfaes, competitions took place - the first since the start of the institution - in the presence of numerous spectators. Mr Percy Morton and Mr. F. A. L. Kitchen were judges. The competitions, which were open to members of Classes 2 and 3, comprised two set exercises on each apparatus (given by the instructor, Mr E. Hawthorn). The maximum number of marks that could be obtained was 12 in each exercise or 24 altogether (on the apparatus). For jumping the maximum number of marks was 15 (1st commencing at 3 feet, 10 inches, and an additional mark for each additional inch.) For rope climbing the maximum number of marks allowed was 9). The appended figures show the number of marks in each competition:
