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!!

Congratulations to all West Street Gymnasts who competed on Sunday 18th July in Milford Haven. Good performances from everyone secured 11 GOLD’s and 3 SILVER medals for the 14 partnerships entered by West Street.
Many of the gymnasts were performing in front of an audience for the first time and with good performances showed lots of promise for the future. All the gymnasts performed their routines really well and should be pleased with the results of their hard work. A really good competition – thanks to everyone who came along and supported the gymnasts!
A special thank you to Jackie Lewis and Jayne Bevan for judging the competition for us, and to Shaun for scrutineering.
A big thank you to Sophie John for not only taking control of all of the gymnasts from West Street but announcing each of the competitors onto the floor. Thank you also to Annissa and Ellen for their help on the day.

Many 1st time international gold medallists for WEST STREET ACRO!
West Street played a huge part in this year’s Celtic Cup International and made an impact on the NDP & FIG team scores to help Wales take home the gold medal!
In the NDP’s our youngest trio scored very well once again and performed superbly even though their music had skipped, they kept the routine going and even managed to finish on time, taking home the silver medal in their category! Grade 3 women’s pair Natasha Minchella and Heather Carter performed well especially with their lack of practice as Tasha has been on holiday (they didn’t see each other for 2 weeks until competition day!) and were awarded the Bronze medal for their Tempo routine and narrowly missed out on the Bronze medal in Balance by 0.07!
The contribution to the FIG team scores were excellent with Charlotte Thomas and Abi Hughes scoring the highest mark for Wales for their Tempo routine in the world age women’s pair’s and taking home the silver medal!. One of our newest partnership’s Lia Richards, Emily Gazzi and Megan Jones scored the second highest mark for Wales with their Tempo routine to take home the gold medal in the world age women’s groups, and Nia Lang, Katie Jenkins and Rhiannon Maine put in 3 solid performances in the Junior women’s group category, (which was the highest category in the competition) taking home Gold medals in both their balance and tempo routines and the silver medal in their combined routine!
Congratulations to Katie Jenkins who was named team captain and got to lift the cup for Wales! Katie did a brilliant job as team captain encouraging the whole team and the position was well deserved after many years in the Welsh Team!
Once again thank you to the support of the parents, and especially the coaches who have worked so hard to achieve the success of the gymnasts at this International. Also a big thank you to Julie for judging all day for us.
WELL DONE ALL!!
