West Street are Best of British

12 Gymnasts from West Street Acro competed at the British Acrobatic Gymnastics Championships in Stoke on Trent on Sunday 25th November and Brought home 2 Gold and 3 Silver medals!!

Luke Price and Lowri Thomas competed confidently against strong competition to become the Mixed Pairs British Champions at their first attempt at British International level. After taking the Bronze medal last year Sophie Bevan, Katie Jenkins and Mari Davies improved on their past achievements by taking home the silver in the large International Women’s groups category with 2 great performances. Lauren Daniel and Bronwen Maine kept up their consistency of excellent performances by making the British Finals for a third time in a row. Emily Gazzi, Lowri Evans and Rhiannon Maine came agonisingly close to the Bronze medal missing out by just 0.25, which is really encouraging for this new partnership.

Another new partnership Lia Richards and Jessica Morris performed a beautiful Balance routine and will be ones to watch for the near future.

Well done to all Gymnasts and coaches!!

Lisa Thomas and Sophie John performed a very clean floor and came 4th narrowly missing out on the bronze medal. The Acro trios was next where there was another title to defend from last year and Lisa Thomas, Lisa Price and Claire Warren this year upped their difficulty and performed a pitch double back somersault to open their routine and went on to win the Gold medal by over a whole mark.

Next up was the artistic Gymnastics section where Lisa Thomas took the silver medal in the over 19 beginners artistic category and also achieved the highest score on the floor. Lisa Price and Claire Warren battled it out in the over 30’s intermediate category and took 2nd and 3rd position respectively with Lisa scoring the highest mark of their category on the vault.
