REGIONAL GRADING COMPETITION
On Sunday Richard’s Trampoline
Club attended the Eastern regional Grading competition in Cambridge.
This was the first competition of the year, after the Christmas
break. The club had a team
of 6 performers, with some trying to qualify for the semi-finals next
month and one competing for the first time.
Callum Lawrence performed some
excellent warm-up routines, but struggled to control his nerves which
lead to a small error in his second compulsory routine.
He’d done enough though to stay in the medals, and he finished
in 3rd place.
Jacob Tuck was pleased to be back
competing after a break from Trampoline Competitions.
He was competing at the highest level possible and produced a
great first compulsory routine. A
couple of minor errors on the second routine left him out of the medals
in 5th place, but he’d easily done enough to qualify for
the Semi-Finals next month.
Jo Wardle and Miriam Jenkins both did well in their groups, and also both qualified for the Semi-Finals. Caitlyn Bridgman suffered from nerves in her second compulsory routine, but she’d already qualified for the Semi-Finals last month. Finally, Imogen Lawley who was competing for her first time today, did 2 solid routines so a great start for her.
