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!!
Due to the British Tournament this weekend there will be no general class or squad training on Friday 9th December.
4 Welsh Gymnasts from West Street Gymnastics centre in Wales competed at the 24th British Veterans Championships at New College, Leicester on SATURDAY OCTOBER 1st 2011 and achieved 2 British Titles (Women’s Pairs and Women’s Groups Acro categories) and also took a silver medal in the women’s over 19 Artistic beginners and a silver and a Bronze medal in the over 30′s intermediate Artistic competition. The gymnasts also took 4th in the team artistic competition and 4th in the Women’s Pairs Acro.
The day was very busy for the 4 gymnasts who all competed in the artistic and acrobatic disciplines which all took place between 9am and 12pm on the day.
The Acro pairs section was the first discipline of the day for the gymnasts which was dominated by Lisa Price and Claire Warren who defended their title from last year with 1.5 marks to spare. 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.

Congratulations to Lisa Thomas, Lisa Price and Claire Warren who travelled all the way to Lowestoft in Suffolk for the 23rd British Veterans championships on 2nd Oct 2010, and brought home 2 gold medals each!
The day began with the trampolining competition where Lisa Thomas performed clean routines to take the Gold in the under 30′s category. This was shortly followed by the women’s Groups category which saw the West Street Trio compete last in a strong field, but with no mistakes, great artistry and a high tariff they sailed to victory with over a whole mark to spare. The last of the morning session was the women’s pairs where Lisa Price and Claire Warren performed a fantastic routine with very high difficulty to once again secure the Gold medal for West Street with over a mark to spare and the highest Acro score of the day!
