Comments Off on Success at Nationals 2015

Last weekend five of our gymnasts travelled down to the GMAC centre in Birmingham to compete for the North West in the Mens Artistic National Setwork finals. These 5 boys had earned their place on the team at the North West Championships in September. On Friday, Aled, Ethan A, Ethan B, and Jack S,  helped to secure team gold in the Level 1 and Level 3 events. Some outstanding individual performances by the boys with Aled and Jack gaining a place in the top ten. On Saturday Jacob, competing at Level 2, also did a brilliant job and his team came home with a silver medal.  Individually Aled got gold on Rings, silver on High Bar, Ethan A also got silver on high bar. Jack got silver on pommel and gold in PPP whilst Jacob got bronze on PPP and gold on Floor. Brilliant results boys!
