Members of Splitz Gymnastic Club earned first place certificates at their latest competition held in Bristol.

Six gymnasts from Splitz Artistic Class took part in their second competition at Axis Trampoline Club in Bristol and were competing against gymnasts from three other clubs.

Each gymnast competed on two pieces of apparatus, which included vault and floor. This competition was at a higher level of competency than their previous competition and the medals were awarded for the combined apparatus scores.

So with no individual apparatus medals up for grabs, the gymnasts were pleased to come away with two medals and two gymnasts being awarded first place certificates.

Etta-Mae Bigwood improved on her previous result and attained fourth on floor and seventh overall in the Under-7 intermediate group. This group comprised of 11 other gymnasts.

Holly Dew and Deimante Simkute competed in the age nine intermediate group against 15 other gymnasts.

Holly attained sixth on floor, seventh on vault and seventh overall. Deimante was awarded a first place certificate on the vault and a bronze medal for her overall performance on both pieces of apparatus.

Their group was of a high standard and they both performed excellently to achieve these results.

Emelia Allen competed in the age nine advanced group and achieved an excellent first place on the vault and fourth overall, against nine other gymnasts.

Alexa Rowley and Jessica Tindall competed in the age 10-11 advanced group against 27 other gymnasts.

Rowley performed an excellent floor routine and was rewarded with third place. Her vault was fourth and she just missed the chance of a medal by coming fourth overall.

Tindall also completed a lovely floor routine and was placed second place. Her vault was placed fifth, resulting in her being awarded a silver medal overall.

All six gymnasts performed to their best ability, presented themselves excellently and were a credit to the club.
