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!!
