London Gymnasts Excel in Liverpool

British Montage 660

The 2022 Men’s and Women’s Artistic British Championships took place at the Echo Arena in Liverpool over four days last weekend, with some outstanding results from gymnasts at clubs in the London Region.

After a long two-year hiatus, the competition began last Thursday 24th March with WAG Espoir and MAG Under 16 Medals up for grabs.  It was Heathrow Gymnastic Club’s Trigg Dudley who brought home a bronze medal for a brilliant high bar performance which helped secure a top 10 placement – 9th AA. Kieran Rockett from Harrow came 31st AA.  For the WAG Espoir’s it was East London’s Gracie Jane Prosser and Sienna Hunt who placed 22nd and 25th AA respectively.

On Friday 25th March, it was the turn of the Women’s Junior All Around and Men’s under 14 All Around and Apparatus competition.  Gymnasts from Camden, Harrow and Heathrow took to the grand arena with some impressive results.  The highlights were Heathrow’s Ellis Niles securing a silver medal for his display on high bar and for the Women, Maddy Dodd, also from Heathrow, came 5th AA and made it through to the vault and floor finals where she went on to take the vault title and finished 8th on floor.  Maddy wasn’t the only London gymnast to make an apparatus final.  She was joined by Harrow School of Gymnastics’ Lauryn Connor who was 11th AA and qualified in 5th place on Bars and 8th place on vault to make the final where she finished in 8th place on both apparatus.

Next it was the turn of the MAG under 18s and Heathrow was the only club representing the London Region.  Both Pacey Foster and Luca Brunelli put in great routines securing 20th and 26th AA respectively.

The Senior categories are always tough as gymnasts are competing against the very best in the Country including the 2020 Olympian cohort.  The London gymnasts excelled.  For the women Europa’s Tomera Hendricks put in a fantastic performance and is now ranked 13th AA.  Tommera also made the Beam final by qualifying in 6th place on the Saturday and finishing 7th in the apparatus finals on Sunday.  Heathrow’s Alia Leat and East London’s Jerusha Clarke finished 24th and 46th AA respectively. For the men Theo-Amari Ochana and Colton Dudley came a respectable 23rd and 26th AA.
