On the 18th and 19th May SALTO had five gymnasts compete at the NDP British Championships! Both the IDP Trio, Lauren, Shannon and Aisha and the Grade 2 Mixed Pair Ben and Molly had to qualify for this competition back in March by winning at The Eastern Region Finals.

 

The five gymnasts were not only representing our club but the EAST Region too and made up part of the team to qualify for the Team event.

 

The IDP Trio were up first with their dynamic routine, a strong clean routine that showed off how hard they have been working placing them in an incredible 6th place with less than a mark from them and 1st place! Their second routine went just as well, giving them a personal best score for balance. Two fantastic performances up against all the best in the Country, Lauren, Shannon and Aisha finished in a very respectable 8th place. Well done girls!

   

Next up the Mixed Pair were first on in their group, a challenging place to be, but they rose to the challenge and set a big score of 26.05! We are delighted to announce that Ben & Molly held onto a podium place and brought back a National Bronze Medal! A Huge Congratulations to the gymnasts, what an incredible achievement – SALTO is so proud of you!

 

A proud weekend for our SALTO Gymnasts and The East Region!
