Categories // GFA News & Competitions

For the first time ever R1 & R2 GfA Squad members competed at the English Bronze, Silver and Gold Championships. For all the girls this was their first time entering a national competition and nerves were high.

Lily Hawthorne and Olivia Gladstone were first to compete in the junior bronze category. Both girls performed well on all pieces. Lily competed her upstarts on both low and high bar and Olivia nailed her round off flick tuck for the first time in competition, both fantastic individual achievements.

Kara Plaats, Honey Farnsworth, Lucy Willis and Molly Nicholls competed next in the intermediate bronze category. The girls delivered brilliant vaults and floor routines with Molly competing her half on half off for the first time in competition. 

Last up for Notts GfA was Tanith Beresford, Jessie Mitchell, Lucy Allan, Jasmin Cooney, Eve Humphreys and Charlotte Simpson in the senior bronze category. The girls came in firing on all cylinders, and delivered solid bar routines and beautiful floors as well as Tanith placing 4th on vault. Beam proved tricky, with Jessie taking a big fall in warm ups, but went on to deliver her routine and recieved a standing ovation from the crowd!

Overall the girls did a fantastic job and came away with a great sense of achievement from competing in this national level event.

They did themselves and NGA proud, well done girls!
