Four more medals for GBR at World Games


Great Britain tumbling and acro teams have added four more medals to their tally at the 2013 World Games in Cali, Colombia.

2013 senior men's British tumbling champion, Kristof Willerton performed difficult yet clean runs to ensure a secure qualification to the final where he held this position and delivered another medal to add to the British treasure chest - this time a bronze for GBR.

Meanwhile 2013 senior women's British tumbling champion, Racheal Letsche also cruised through safely in third place in qualification from her two runs and then managed to go one better in the final and take the silver medal.

In the acro competition, the women's group (Georgia Lancaster, Elise Matthews & Millie Spalding) had a less easy route to qualify for the final, only just qualifying by a few tenths but they took full advantage in their Combined routine and gave a stunning performance to secure a medal. After their performance a guaranteed bronze turned to silver as medal favourites Belgium, faltered.

The Men's Pair (Tim Pritchard and Alex Houston) did not wish to be left out of the all Brit medal party and so their stunning second place in qualification remained so in the final where they gave an all-time best performance in their combined routine to earn them a silver meaning the days innings for the British team totalled three silver and one bronze, to add to yesterday's two gold's.

Full results and more information can be found on the World Games official website.

The last of the GBR team to compete will be Kat Driscoll and Amanda Parker in the women's synchronised trampolining and Peter Cracknell and Nicole Short in the men's and women's double mini trampoline.
