Queen Anne’s Sports News
Monday 10th June 2019
A round-up of all the latest sports news in the week commencing Monday 10 June 2019.
Amelia S (U4) has been competing in three different trampoline events in a range of high level qualifying championships over the last few weekends.
At the English Championship Qualifiers she was entered in to the highest level and has moved up an age category.
Although still in U4, Amelia was competing in an age group open to 15 and 16 year olds, which included GB squad members. She placed 8th in the individual trampoline, 4th in synchronised trampoline and 8th in DMT (double mini trampoline).
At the National League Qualifiers the following weekend, she placed 6th in trampoline, 4th in DMT and took gold in the synchronised trampoline. She qualified for the finals in all three events!
At the British Championships she qualified for the finals in DMT, which is pretty impressive considering she only took the event up in January!
