Seven Arun gymnasts made the long trek to Farnborough for the Liberty Gymnastics Club invitational competition.

This was a three-piece apparatus competition with gymnasts competing on floor, vault and trampet work and medals were awarded for each piece of apparatus only.

Rebecca Williamson competed in the advanced girls’ section for those aged 14-15 and had an excellent competition, winning gold medals for both her superb vault and trampet work and a silver for her floor routine.

There were three Arun gymnasts competing in the bronze 13-17 group and Charlotte Williamson came out on top, winning one medal of each colour. She put in a lovely performance on floor for the gold medal then won a silver for her trampet work and a bronze on vault.

Emily Day won silver with her great vault work and bronze on floor while Jenna Partridge put in an excellent trampet series to win the gold medal.

Jordan Kitchen, Chantal Mawbey and Lily Smyth all competed in the silver 13-17 group. Jordan finished with a bronze medal on trampet and Chantal put in two wonderful performances on both floor and trampet that gave her a well-deserved gold medal for each piece.

Lily won medals on all three pieces with two silver medals coming from her strong vault and trampet performances and a bronze from her floor routine.

The final medal tally of 15 – six gold, five silver and four bronze – delighted coach Carolyn Millar, who is now looking forward to a bright 2015.
