MILTON KEYNES OPEN
18 May 2008 saw members of Richard’s Trampoline Club travelling over
to Milton Keynes for their annual competition.
This competition catered for everyone, from beginners to National
standard. For some it was a
warm-up for the grading in a few weeks time, and for others it was a
chance to try out a new routine.
Grade 3 Clara Williams did some great routines and very narrowly missed
out on 1st place. Lizzie
Mercer made a good start in her set routine, but suffered a bit of
travel during her second routine, which left her just outside the medals
in 4th place. Jo
Collins has shown good improvement during training, but made an
uncharacteristic mistake at the end of her set routine.
She made some marks up in her voluntary routine but the best she
could do was 5th place.
Overall though, they all did enough to win team 1st at
Grade 4 Laura Burns and Levi Rimmer both did some excellent routines,
they’ve been working on their form marks and this paid off as they
both finished 2nd within their groups.
Hazel Smart was competing for her first time at this level, and
was incredibly nervous. She
tried her best and finished in 3rd place.
Grade 5 Tate Henocq was competing for her first time at this level.
Despite her nerves she easily completed her routines and finished
in 6th place.
the ungraded group Rebecca Shepherd finished in 8th place and
Hazel Childs in 12th place.
In the beginners group Chloe Saunders did amazingly well with it
only being her second competition, and she finished easily in 1st
place. Helen Viner finished
in 12th place.
finally in the starter groups Shannon Lewinton finished in 2nd
place, Lukas Fairweather in 3rd place and Tegan Lewinton in 4th
place. With only fractions
of a mark separating them all.
