Notts girls shine at British Espoir Championships!

Categories // Women's artistic

On Saturday 3rd December, Scarlett Williams, Ramiyah Kofi and Isla Lees competed in the British Espoir championships in Essex. Unfortunately due to injury Caitlin Williams was unable to compete.

Saturday was the AA competition with all 3 girls starting on beam. A difficult first piece to start on, some nerves showed for the girls but fantastic difficulty was performed, Isla showing her flexibility with beautiful leaps and Ramiyah demonstrating powerful acro elements with her high flic flic tuckback, Scarlett produced a stuck routine to score over 12.

Floor, only Isla and Ramiyah competed. Both girls balanced dynamic tumbling with excellent leaps Ramiyah scoring 12.6 and Isla a fabulous 13.7, this saw both girls into apparatus finals on Sunday. On to Vault, Isla showed 2 neat tidy yuchenkos in the tuck and pike position whilst both Ramiyah and Scarlett performed a straight and tuck yuchenko. Scarlett impressed to score 13.85 for her straight yuchenko. All 3 girls would perform again on Sunday in the apparatus finals.

The girls finished on bars, Ramiyah had a uncharacteristic fall on her tkatchev but completed her routine with confidence showing strong body line and a stuck double pike dismount. Isla reproduced her new routine including a tkatchev and double pike dismount to score 12.05, whilst Scarlett completed her routine with lovely handstands and a strong double straight dismount. These performances also saw all 3 girls in Sunday's apparatus finals.

In a strong field and with the earlier errors on beam, the girls showed their true professionalism to fight until the end of all 4 apparatus. Isla finished 6th overall in GB, with Ramiyah 17th.

Ramiyah placed 6th, Isla 4th and Scarlett took the bronze medal with an average score of 13.05. Scarlett also had the highest execution score of the day on Vault for her fabulous straight yuchenko.

On to bars and Ramiyah today showed her routine with a high tkatchev caught successfully, this was enough to secure her the highest execution score of the day and the bronze medal. Isla placed 6th and Scarlett 7th. The girls enjoyed a well deserved rest to watch the other competitors on beam.

Last up was floor, Ramiyah improved on her score from Saturday to place 6th whilst Isla being the very last performance of the day wowed the judges and the crowd with her excellent balance of tumbling, leaps and elegant dance. Isla scored 13.85 with the highest execution score of the day and earning herself the British Espoir Floor title.
