Katie, NDP British Tumbling Champion (level 6)

Katie, aged 15 from Tupton Hall School represented the East Midlands in the NDP British Tumbling Finals on 2nd June 2013 at Fenton Manor, Stoke on Trent. Out of the 12 British Regions only 6 regions had gymnasts qualifying for National Level 6. Katie gave an excellent performance in her round showing incredible skill and execution of very difficult tumbles. She made it through to the finals in 2nd place, only 0.1 point behind her opponent in 1st. In the final she performed her last tumble run with excellence and determination, scoring  9.7 to finish in Gold Medal position.

Katie now has the chance to trial for the International Tumbling Squad, however would like to leave it a year due to her GCSE’s and would like to return to the National Development Programme next year to  complete the last level, Level 7, which only 2 girls qualified for this year.

Katie is a member of the Sharley Park Gymnastics Club.
