World Age Group Tumbling Championships in Sofia

Jay  Kal
November 2013 was our very first world age group competition.  It was great fun and such a good experience. Jaydon was competing for the 11-12 age group and Kallum was competing for the 13-14 age group.  

The Great Britain squad travelled altogether, as we do for all our international competition, to our hotel, venue and anywhere we needed to go.  As there is two hours time difference between Britain and Bulgaria we were getting up at around 4:30 every morning so you could understand that we were pretty tired.  

We trained every day before each of our individual competitions and after we had competed we had a chance to relax and cheer on our other team mates.  

The food in the hotel was poor and we were not allowed to eat certain foods and the weather was freezing cold but it didn’t stop us doing what we went to do.

On the competition day Kallum qualified in 1st place and finaled in 3rd place in the 13-14 age group and Jaydon qualified in 4th place and finaled in 5th place. The nerves got to you when you were stood at the start of the track but when you landed at the end of the track it felt like a weight off your shoulders.

A big well done to both Jaydon and Kallum. The region are very proud of you.
