Superb tumbling silver for Shanice Davidson - British Gymnastics

Superb tumbling silver for Shanice Davidson


Shanice Davidson has powered her way to the world silver medal at the trampoline, tumbling and DMT world championships in St Petersburg, Russia.

Shanice produced two superb tumbling passes under pressure in the final to score 69.500 points for the silver. The DurhamCity gymnast is competing in her first senior world championships and looked stunned with her results saying:

“I’m speechless, I really can’t believe it. I’m so happy with how I performed in my first senior worlds. I don’t look at the scoreboard when the competitions going on so to see I was in silver at the end was incredible. I really don’t know how to react - it doesn’t feel real. It gives me a massive amount of confidence and I’ll keep on working on my difficulty and hopefully be back again next year for more.”

Also competing alongside Shanice in the tumbling final was British champion Rachel Davies who also completed two excellent tumbling passes to score 67.700 points for 5th place. In the men’s double mini trampoline final Rhys Gray impressed placing in 6th position with a score of 67.8 points.
