Amelia (4) has once again shown her trampolining talent as just before half-term, she competed in the English Trampoline Championships. In the individual event Amelia made the final and placed 7th.

In the synchronised trampoline event, Amelia and her partner competed in the 13 – 16 age category and won the silver medal. Their medals were presented by Bryony Page, the Olympic Silver Medalist at Rio. It was a great achievement for the two girls to come second nationally especially as they were the youngest in their age category.
