International success for British juniors


Our rising starts put in some superb performances against Europe's very best at the Youth Olympic Games qualifying event in Baku.

In the men’s all-around event Adam Tobin placed in 4th scoring 78.931 with Jake Jarman 14th scoring 75.198. Amelie Morgan was top placed in the women’s competition scoring 51.433 for 6th with club teammate Phoebe Jakubczyk in 10th with a score of 50.432 points. The gymnasts were all competing with the aim of getting placed in the top 17 which allocates a GB place at the Youth Olympics in October.

Elsewhere our junior boys team of Raekwon Baptiste, Pavel Karnejenko, Matthew Boardman, Jamie Lewis, Korben Fellows and Donell Osbourne placed second recently in the under-18 4-way international in Switzerland. The gold went to Switzerland with Germany in bronze and Jamie Lewis in silver all-around.
