Okehampton Gym, Trampoline and DMT Club had a good day at the Tornadoes competition in Totnes on 1st May, coming away with six medals.
For many, it was their first experience of a trampoline competition. For the more seasoned competitors, it was a chance to try out a higher grade.
In their first competition, Alice Smith and Elise Boucher competed the P6 routine with two brilliant performances to come 3rd and 5th. Cerys Eyre took bronze in the N1 class with a steady performance. In N2 U13, Bethany Watts also achieved a podium place, coming 3rd, with Sophie Wyer coming 5th and Ellie Chapman coming 7th.
In NDP1 U12, Shea Coyle was placed 6th, and in the NDP1 O12, Faye Pimlott gave two solid performances to come 5th. Isy Chapman also did well, coming 9th in NDP2.
William Bridges won a silver medal in the NDP3 class, with Owen Pitman coming 5th and Miya Porter 10th.
In the synchronised event, Faye Pimlott and Bethany Watts took a silver medal in the Club Synchro with two consistent performances. Owen Pitman and Miya Porter performed two excellent routines to come 10th in the Regional Synchro.
It was a fun day, with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. All the performers did well to adjust to the bouncier trampolines, and it proved an encouraging start to the season for trampolinists training for the regionals in Bath at the end of the year.
The club trains on Wednesdays in the Okehampton College Gym and operates a waiting list. If you are interested in joining, please contact Vicki at vicki @ ocrasport.org.uk or OCRA on 01837 54546.
