Notts gymnasts flying high after top 10 placings at national competition

Categories // Women's artistic

Sunday 13th May saw the country’s best 10 and 11 year-old gymnasts in competition at the British Compulsory 2 event. Passing this grade is an important step towards a gymnast qualifying to the British Championships and so the entrants were competing to achieve a required pass mark as well as against each other.

Notts Gymnastics Academy had two participants in the competition, Beatrice Hill and Grace Davies. Both gymnasts performed fantastically and represented Notts with outstanding poise and confidence.

Beatrice earned top 10 placings on vault, beam and range and conditioning – an extra routine performed for grades competitions to test gymnast’s, flexibility and strength.

Beatrice’s performance on beam was particularly impressive given that she placed 5th in the competition having counted a fall, which is testament to the quality of the rest of her routine which demonstrated mastery of the skills as well as excellent artistry.

Grace also secured top 10 placings on vault and floor where she showed her remarkable power, in addition to her new choreography for 2018 which engaged the judges and audience alike.

Both gymnasts easily surpassed the required pass mark ensuring their progression to the final compulsory grade which they will take in 2019, marking the final hurdle to gaining entry to the 2019 British championships.

Additionally, we are delighted to say that Grace placed 10th and Beatrice 6th all around which were exceptional results in a very competitive field of over 40 gymnasts.

Notts Gymnastics Academy would like to commend both gymnasts on such fantastic performances, and congratulate elite coaches Jo Miller and Laura Wilson for their hard work and dedication to assist the girls in achieving this result.
