At the Southern Region aerobic gymnastics competition, the Splitz squad started the year off very well.
The national level gymnasts (NAC) group one trio of Ellise King, Erin Aggett and George Weall produced a fantastic routine to earn themselves the gold medal with a clear 2.45 lead over second place.
Next up was Emily Allison-Hawkes in the national development category in her first competition at this level. Emily joined teammates Aggett, Weall, Astill and Taylor to compete in the 11-14 age category as a group.
The group showed their new routine was a cut above the rest and walked away with another gold medal.
In the national level competition, first up were the 11-14 individual women. Ellise King had a promising start to the year, producing a classy routine to finish joint third. Unfortunately the other competitors’ execution score was 0.05 higher meaning Ellise just missed out on a medal.
Laila Astill and Izzy Taylor both competed in the individual category for the first time in this age group and both gave dynamic performances.
In the international (FIG) level, Millie Baker showed excellent potential in all areas, but unfortunately made a slight error on the day. Following Millie was brother Charlie in the national development individual men’s category.
Charlie performed his new Footloose routine showing off fantastic artistry and execution to win the gold medal. The penultimate routine from the Splitz squad saw Toby Baker take to the floor in the group one age 12-14 category.
Toby gave a confident and strong performance to earn the bronze medal. In the final routine, Toby was joined by teammate Zoë Wilshire to compete in the mixed pairs category.
The pair’s Beauty and the Beast routine was dynamic and entertaining claiming the gold medal. The squad are now preparing for the next competition, The Heathrow International in four weeks time.
The club’s artistic class competed in their first competition in Bristol. The gymnasts competed on three pieces, floor, vault and trampette, and won a total of 11 medals.
