Weston Aerobic Gymnastics Club members brought home medals galore from Wales.
GYMNASTS from Weston Aerobic Gymnastics Club travelled to Wales for the first national competition of the year and returned home with a haul of medals in every colour.
The club took a squad of over 50 gymnasts from regional to international level. The competition kicked off with the RAC competitors, the youngest of which was only six-years-old.
Mille Baker set the standard for professionalism as her music stopped halfway through and like a true Weston gymnast she carried on and managed to come eighth out of 16.
Another memorable performance from RAC day was Sophie Avery who came first in her category with a beautiful performance. Sophie then joined Anna Cates, Jordan Coombes, Lauren Tossel and Sophie Tucker to win another gold medal in the group category. RAC squad walked away with a total of 13 medals.

Finally, the weekend finished with the international competitors. The strongest squad Weston has ever produced showed their class by bringing home titles in every category entered, the only club in the country to have all three mixed pairs and individual male champions.
Martine Griffiths, chair of judging panel and head of Welsh Aerobic Gymnastics said: “This is the strongest I have seen Weston’s international competitors and there is a promising future not only for the club, but for GB.”
One of the most outstanding performances of the weekend was Rhys Williams, who moved into the 15-17 men’s category and performed a stunning gold medal winning routine, scoring an impressive 19.05 a score to equal the older most experienced gymnasts in the country. The international gymnasts won a total of 10 titles and numerous medals.
