London’s Olympic Park and the velodrome played host to trampolining’s National League finals – and Bognor’s Dragonflyers were represented.

The top 24 qualifiers per category compete over a series of four events to jump off for medals.

Dragonflyers are very proud of the girls who have done exceptionally well over a long, intense and hectic season.

Flyers had five qualifiers with four participating.

Sofija Kalnicenko ranked top out of 77 in the 11-12 years level three, Izzy Hauxwell ranked tenth in the 13-14 years level two, while Libby Morton in the nine-12 years level two and Anya Johnston in the 15-16 years level two were both ranked 13th – a fantastic end to a successful season.

Kalnicenko maintained her composure and proved why she was No1 as she performed her routines at great height with no regard for the difficulty involved to easily win gold.

Morton increased her difficulty level, adding a double back somersault, gaining her ninth place – a rise of four places – and she was less than 0.2 of a point off eighth.

Johnstone moved up three places to tenth as she bounced a 7.9 difficulty tariff for the first time. Hauxwell finished a credible 19th with her new routine. Hauxwell and Johnston have another year in their age groups.

Dragonflyers are very proud of the girls who have done exceptionally well over a long, intense and hectic season which has included travelling as far as Sweden, Austria and all corners of the UK.
