Morgan takes beam bronze as Team GB end with four EYOF medals

amelieEYOFAmelie Morgan’s beam bronze medal on the final day of action at Gyor 2017 took Team GB’s gymnastics tally to four for the week.

Amelie, who had finished fifth in the team event with Zoe Simmons and Taeja James and then seventh in the all-around, scored 13.233 which was enough for third place.

The 14-year-old also competed in the floor final finishing just 0.2 off the bronze medal spot with a score of 12.666.

“I wasn’t even expecting to medal so I’m over the moon,” said Amelie. “It was really nerve wracking being last on the beam, watching everyone go and trying to stay calm. Once I’d finished my routine I was really happy but I had no idea whether it was going to be good enough to get a medal.It’s been an amazing week. Both our teams have done amazing and for me personally it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done. I’ve done 10 routines and I haven’t hadn’t a fall and that’s a first for me, so that’s really pleasing.”

Jamie Lewis ended his week with sixth place in the men’s parallel bars. The 16-year-old began the week with team silver alongside Jake Jarman and Pavel Karnejenko before claiming individual gold in both the all-around and rings finals.
