East Midlands take National Grade 2 title.
26th June 2018
A great win from the East Midlands National Grade 2 gymnasts at the National Finals held in Stoke on Trent on the weekend of May 26th/27th.
Great overall performances from all the team members led to them being in the lead after the first round. With some very strong regions still to compete coaches, gymnasts and parents held their breath when one by one it was becoming obvious that a medal was a possibility. With the East region finishing on bars it was realised that they would have to obtain near perfect routines to take the gold but as the last score came in the title went to the East Midlands.
Courtney Leigh Simpson took the bronze medal for her individual performance.
Congratulations to all the gymnasts and coaches from Amber Valley GC, Hinckley GC and Kettering OGC
