British Gymnastics Championships

Last weekend, Year 7 gymnast Freddy Nelson travelled to Basildon to compete in the British Gymnastics Championships. Freddy competed against 55 other boys in the U12 age group and was placed 7th overall. He was also placed in the top 10 for four of the six pieces he performed, and his highest score was 13.25 (for the floor) which placed him joint 4th! This is an exceptional achievement for Freddy, particularly as he was competing against older boys and has only been doing gymnastics for just over four years. Congratulations Freddy on this fantastic achievement!
