Flyers score at Bath Regionals

Okehampton Flyers Gym and Trampoline Club had a successful day at their first British Gymnastics Bath regional trampoline competition.

Angus Bond won the NDP4 13+ class with two solid routines and a top score for range and conditioning. Miya Porter came 8th in the 11-12 NDP3 class, also with two excellent routines.

Both gymnasts normally train on school trampolines, so they did well to adjust to the top level trampolines they had to compete on.

To top a great day, they also met Olympic trampolinist Nathan Bailey.

Flyers coach Vicki Pritchard said: “Both gymnasts did well at their first regional level competition, which is a big step up from county level. They have also qualified for the regional team selection event in March, so they are working hard to prepare for that”.

The club has been raising money for equipment to give children in Okehampton and the surrounding area the chance to compete trampolining at a higher level and to compete tumbling. It still has a long way to go, so any donations or sponsorship would be greatly appreciated.
