The weekend (7th & 8th July) saw a fantastic display of gymnastics at the NIA arena in Birmingham for the 2012 trampoline, tumbling and double mini trampoline British Championships.

With only weeks to go before the start of the London Olympics Team GB's Kat Driscoll got her last chance to perform in front of a home crowd and successfully defended her British title with a fantastic routine to score 54.105 ahead of Bryony Page in second (53.180) and Laura Gallagher in third (50.945).

In the senior mens trampoline competition, uncharacteristic errors from James Higgins put him out of the final and with last year’s winner Luke Strong unable to compete due to injury; the top spot was left wide open. In the end Nathan Bailey took the title with 56.665 ahead of Daniel Greaves in silver (55.265) and Liam Abrahams in bronze (54.440).

In the senior mens tumbling there were only two gymnasts competing. Kristof Willerton regained his title over Abdullah Izzidien and across in the women’s competition Rachel Letsche emerged victorious, ahead of Deborah Gathercole in silver and Sophie Parkin in bronze.

In the DMT senior women's event, a new champion was crowned as Georgia Downing kept her composure to win gold ahead of last year’s winner Robyn Osborne and Lydia Yates in Bronze. In the men’s there was again another new title winner, Tim Horgan, who took the gold over defending champion Peter Cracknell, who was then followed by Jason Plowman in bronze.

Across all age groups and all disciplines there were some fantastic performances, proving just how much strength and depth Great Britain has.


Team GB trampoline gymnast Kat Driscoll “I’m so happy to have retained my title and had incredible support from the crowd which is perfect preparation for the Games – it was definitely a special experience competing as our 2012 Olympian.

I felt a responsibility to perform well and am very glad I was able to handle the pressure.

It gives me great confidence going into the last few weeks of preparation as I work on the finer details of my routines. I'm really enjoying the build-up to the Games and the support really gives you the boost to train hard.”
