Southampton Gymnastics Club scooped six golds and a silver in the Buckinghamshire Open Championships.
A very young team of Acrobatic Gymnasts competed, and for all but three it was their first experience of competition outside of the club.
Oliver Hodges (11) and Piers Pegg (9) were the first to win gold in the Grade 3 Men’s Pairs category. Sam Winter and Indiana Les Bas, both ten, also won gold. For Indiana, it was her first ever competition.
The club’s youngest performer, seven-year-old Lucy Hodgson, and her partner Rhiannon Ford Bailey (11) triumphed in the Grade 3 Women’s Pair Routine.
Sam Skading (9) and Louella Churcher (7) gracefully stepped onto the floor, showing their artistry skills to the full en route to another gold.Elly Smith (12) and Emma Ford Bailey performed a clean, precise routine poise to win their section.
Two Southampton women’s groups were competing against each other.
Hannah Winter (10), Chantelle Estalles (10) and Elektra Langer (8) demonstrated a charismatic, cheeky and tidy routine to win their category.
That left Jessica Barry (10), Shami Bright Garamukanwa (11) and Abigail May (9) to take silver.
Acrobatic Gymnastics is a fusion of Gymnastics and performance, working together in partnerships building pyramids, individual tumbling and performance of dance.
