Our intermediate floor and vault competitive gymnasts took part in the South East regional competition held on Sunday 15th July at Guildford Spectrum. 14 gymnasts took part in the regional event and they all showed some fantastic routines.
In round one Josephine Clark, Gracie Beight, Jamie Simons and Amelie Power all showed very clean floor routines in the 2011-2010 age group. Amelie and Jamie both received joint 3rd position, Gracie wasn’t far behind in 5th and to finish the group Josephine finished in 7th. In the 2009 age group Tallulah Gurney showed lots of improvement on the vault to finish in 8th position. To finish the round Elwyn Dury competed in the 2007 age group, after a great routine on floor placed in 1st to become regional champion.
Round two saw Jacob Gurden pick up the gold medal in the 2004 age group becoming regional champion, slightly behind was Ben Gurden who placed 2nd just 0.1 behind. Holly Scanlon showed confidence throughout the competition to place 11th in the very large 2006 age category. After a small wobble on vault Ethan Laurent performed a fantastic floor routine to finish in 3rd place within the 2009-2010 age group. Finally our boys competing in the 2008-2009 age group had a brilliant competition, John Burthom placed 8th, Ben O’Connor 5th, Josh Lines 3rd and Darko Downer 2nd.
Well done to all gymnasts who took part in the event.
