Saturday began with the junior competition. Woking’s Sarp Orbay was entered into the U14 category, this was his first time competing on all six apparatus in Great Britain. Despite mistakes on Vault and Pommels, he gave a good account of himself finishing in 12th place (61.350). In the U16 competition Rudi Moriano placed 6th AA (64.400), picking up a bronze medal on the H-Bar. Charlie Rose competed on just four apparatus, winning a silver medal for his well-executed pommel routine.
With Sunday came the turn of the U9’s. James Fricker was Woking’s sole representative in this category. He put in some consistent performances to finish 7th AA. In the U10 competition Ben Porter put together some great performances to finish 2nd AA with 76.100. He added to his medal haul with golds on Floor and Rings, a Silver on Pommels and a Bronze medal on vault. Max Veo-Creek produced six clean routines to finish in 13th (70.150). Harrison Lamble (16th, 69.800) had a mixed day, but he put out some new skills and was rewarded with a silver medal for his Tsukahara on vault. Jay Coote successfully performed his double back from rings and Tsukahara vault for the first time in competition, finishing 18th (68.950). Team mate Hayden Blackmun was just 0.05 behind, finishing 19th AA with 68.900.
