Orbit Milton Keynes
National Development Plan Trampoline Finals, 8th - 10th July 2016, Telford
From Friday to Sunday our four qualifiers from Orbit Milton Keynes battled it out in Telford for National places in their ages and grades.
They really rose to the occasion, and competing at 8.30am our 10 yr. old Fraser Macpherson in NDP3 added some new scalps to his tally taking 4th place just behind the bronze.
In NDP1 10-11yrs, Laura Kelly excelled herself with a fine Silver medal shocking the opposition - she had never been in the top 5 during qualifications, but they don't know how hard she has worked.
At over 13s NDP4 Rebecca Dormer was just under her usual high altitude, a flexed knee here, an arm out from the side there, but still took a fine 5th place.
Finally Milly Cole flew at NDP5 13-14s and after a strong warm-up, she narrowly saved her 'set' routine with all sorts of problems arising. From last position there was nothing to lose, and Milly refused to accept total defeat and gave one of her very best voluntary routines. This pulled her back up to an honourable 6th place.
Well done, these are national positions!!
