The team at Welsh Gymnastics has achieved impressive results at the 2017 British Trampoline, Tumbling and Double Mini Trampoline Championships this month.

The Championship, which took place at the Echo Arena, Liverpool, is regarded as the most prestigious tumbling event in the UK, with hundreds of participants competing across three individual disciplines.    

The competition was preceded by two qualifying events, the British Spring Series (BSS) 1 & 2, which gives gymnasts the opportunity to trial for World Age group team and individual places.

Welsh Gymnastics secured some fantastic results at the event, with British Trampoline Champion Breanne Murzyn going into day two in 2nd place, just 0.1 points behind the leader. Breanne kept her composure and secured the top spot by 1.5 points. 

In the tumbling event, Wales was represented by two gymnasts from Carmarthen Gymnastics Club, Aeliyah Vergara and Rhisian Thomas.

Aeliyah was the youngest Welsh gymnast at nine years old and managed to secure an 8th place finish, and Rhisian competed in a very strong field and finished 9th. 

Pencoed’s Jenson Ball, who is still very new to gymnastics having only joined this year, secured 8th position in the event, while Andreas Adams, the only Welsh senior tumbler to compete, also achieved 8th place, despite having to juggle his preparation with moving house, moving clubs, leaving university and beginning a new job this year.

Finally, Swansea-born tumbler Megan Surman had a successful competition, keeping her composure and securing a third place podium finish.

Welsh Gymnastics would like to send huge congratulations to everybody who took part.
