British Tumbling Championships

Jasmine L (Year 8) had a very busy weekend inside Sheffield Arena competing in the 2017 English Tumbling Championships.

Following podium training on Friday afternoon and warm-up practice the following morning, Jasmine began her competition knowing that only the top eight scorers in each age group would progress to the finals. Jasmine knew she would have to land both her runs to secure a place in her final and that she did, qualifying in 7th place; her first tumbling final!

A tumbling final in the 11-12yr age group requires that each gymnast perform only one run and Jasmine chose to perform a double-tuck somersault. Jasmine landed it cleanly and scored enough to finish in 5th place overall. A fantastic result for Jasmine as she now begins training new skills in readiness for moving up to the 13-14yr age group in January.

Well done Jasmine.
