Top Tumblers!

Top Tumblers!

Our gymnasts produced some excellent work during the North of England Regional Tumbling Championships. Many of our top performing gymnasts were missing from this event due to injury or illness. Our girls’ team, which included, Amelie Craig, Jemima Hawkins, Libby Chrisp, Niamh Linkleter, Kate Snedden and Maia Snedden produced some excellent work which will provide them with experience for next year and also as a preparation event for the Regional Floor and Vault Championships. Libby Chrisp particularly impressed me with her neat and powerful tumbling. The boys once again performed to a high level with some excellent work from Isak Cornelissen who was placed 2nd and qualified for the National Finals, along with Finn Gavin, who won the U14 age group and Michael Gill who was placed 2nd in the U19 section. Malachy Gavin and Ariz Zaman, our two most improved male tumblers produced some excellent work as did Eddie Mackay, Harry Jopling and William Forster. Congratulations to you all: a wonderful Sunday afternoon of gymnastics.
Mr Mackay
