Four SEA gymnasts were competing at the British Acrobatic Gymnastics Championships in Stoke-on-Trent at the weekend. This is the highest level of competition in the UK and featured national champions and winners of elite international competitions abroad. The girls showed their incredible talent on the biggest stage and did themselves proud.
Mia E(11M) and Ava E (9S) performed brilliantly in the qualifying rounds with their trio. They progressed to the final which saw the Top 8 compete again for the medals, eventually finishing in 8th place overall. It was a fantastic achievement in their first appearance at this elite level.
Holly W (11H) and Emma G (8B) just missed out on the final after finishing 9th after the two qualifying rounds but can be very proud to have finished in the top ten in the UK.
