Okehampton Flyers trampolinist Mason Parker-Groves finished in the top six at British Gymnastics finals held at the Utilita Arena, Birmingham.
Mason has progressed quickly, competing in his first national Spring Cup event at the Telford International Centre in May. He achieved above the required score to qualify for the British Gymnastics National Age Group Final.
Mason showed good form in the qualifying round and the final, performing three stylish routines. Mason’s coach, Vicki Pritchard, said: “Mason has worked hard this year to increase his skill difficulty and perfect his technique to enter British Gymnastics nationals. To come 6th in his first year of national competition, in the highest level of British Gymnastics competition children can enter is a real achievement.”
Mason is working on further increasing his routine difficulty for the English event this year and ahead of the British Gymnastics Spring Cup competitions next season.
