Orbit Milton Keynes
Regional Qualifier, 26th February 2017, Abingdon
Another Scoop at the Second Southern Region Grading Competition
Well, the orbit trampolinists showed that last month's medal haul was not just helped by home advantage.
This time away in Abingdon, we did almost equally well. From 38 entries we came away with some surprisingly good results, some of our winners surpassing January's achievement.
Our Gold medalists in ages from 7 to 14 years were:
Charlotte Blackmore, Rachel Marsh, Isobel Burrows, Olivia Webb, Laura Kelly, Libby-Leigh Corby and Summer Goldsmith. One performance which stood out from all others was that of Laura Kelly, who scored two 9s and an 8.8, the highest of the day.
Our Silver medalists were:
Madison Feegan, Sophie Chambers and Imogen Wells.
Those taking Bronze were:
Milly Cole, Millie Heathcote, Lily Mundy, and Laura Kelly again.
All other places were hard fought and nobody performed under par, just some of the groups were almost inseparable. Also showing their skills were:
Fraser Macpherson, Rebecca Dormer, Borte Jones, Clara Marsh, Lauren Muttitt, Laila Carey, Niamh Cole, Liz Blackmore, Helena Bloomfield, Faridah Lawal, and Grade Blackmore.
All those who made the podium achieved a score to go through to the March Regional Team Qualifier, as did many of those who missed a medal. Next time we take on the other Regions, so keep on training.
Thanks to our Judges, recorders, marshals, other helpers and parents, without whom, these days would not be possible. And of course, the coaches.
