WESTON Aerobic Gymnastics swept the board in the national section of the Alex Strachen Championships in Reading during a three-day competition, winning gold medals in every category entered at national level and brining home yet more medals in the international section.In the national, development pairs Rhys Williams and Keira Langden sparkled through their gymnastic routine to win gold medals, followed by teammates Jaime Ward, Emily Antoine and Amelia Barrett who won the gold in the trio section. Group 1 (age 12-14) was again dominated by Weston gymnasts, Nicole Smith proving she was in a class of her own in a large category by winning the female individuals with a huge margin. Katherine Forster and Jade Hunt won the pairs with teammates Nicole Smith and Rosie Hitchins winning the silver.Jackson Buller completed the set of gold medals in this age group by winning the male individual in effortless style.Group 2 (age 15-17) had Louisa Capel and Georgia White competing in this age group for the first time, and delighting their coaches by winning the club another gold medal. At the international level of the championships all the gymnasts were going to have to work hard for podium positions, so the club were thrilled with the Group 2 results, winning gold in the pairs were Kirsty Harvey and Charlotte White, and bronze in the trio Olivia Owen, Flora Lacy and Trina Rose. The club now prepares to travel to Slovakia in April with some of the international gymnasts, and have a nail-biting wait to see which gymnast have been selected to represent Great Britain at the prestigious French open championships.
