Libby Bunker and Kayleigh Down from Splitz Gym Club picked up silver medals at the National Schools finals.

SPLITZ Gym Club travelled to Fenton Manor, Stoke-on-Trent for the National Schools finals.

Gymnasts competed against the best in the country, following their medal success in the South West competition.

Gymnasts Harry Sheppard (Herons Moor), Archie Pickles, Kayleigh Down (Oldmixon) and Libby Bunker (Churchill) competed in the tumbling event.

Harry was placed seventh and Archie 10th, as both performed three clean tumble runs.

Thanks go to the parents who supported the club, who are producing many tumbling champions. Their next competition is in December. The club will also be competing in July at the acrobatics championships.
