GB Success in Belgium

At the Trampoline & Tumbling World Cup event held in Ostende, Belgium, on 28th & 29th August, Great Britain won two individual medals in the womens events.

Kat Driscoll from Apollo Trampoline Club took 1st place and the gold medal in the individual womens trampoline event and Rachel Letsche from Wakefield Gym Club secured second place and the silver medal in the individual womens tumbling event. Superb achievements for both girls!

Jack Helme and Stephen Williams, both of City of Liverpool, represented GB in the mens syncro final and Kat with Apollo clubmate Cara Jamieson also took part in the womens syncro final.

In the tumbling event all three GB female tumblers Rachel, Zara McLean & Jenny Dawes, all from Wakefield Gym Club, ranked in the top 6 competitors after the preliminary competition, but under the FIG rules only 2 competitors (Rachel and Zara) could proceed to the final.
