Bryony Page led a superb performance by the British senior women’s trampoline team in Sofia by taking the FIG World Cup gold in the individual final scoring 54.460 points to top the podium.

Bryony’s success is her first World Cup win and capped a dominant weekend for the British girls which also saw Kat Driscoll take the individual silver (54.360 points ) and Kat and Amanda Parker the syhcnro bronze.

Bryony said : “We have been working really hard on my new routine and it’s been going well in training so to then produce it in a World Cup final felt so good, I’m really proud. When the scores came up I just couldn't stop looking at the screen, and couldn’t believe that my first individual World Cup medal was gold. It felt amazing standing on the podium and hearing the national anthem and even more special standing there with my teammate Kat to complete the GBR one two. Hopefully looking ahead to next year we can continue to be at the top of the podium, I will try to increased my tariff more and continue training hard.”

If it wasn’t for the two per country make final rule the GBR women could even have secured the whole podium as all four team members finished in the top eight in qualifying with Kat Driscoll first,  Bryony Page third, Amanda Parker sixth and Laura Gallagher eighth.

In the men's individual the results were less impressive with no GB qualifying for the final (Dan Greaves 31st; James Higgins 35th; Nathan Bailey 37th; Steve Walsh 43rd).
