Billingshurst based Gatwick Flyers Trampoline Club took gold and silver at the South East Regional NDP qualifiers in Gillingham, competing against more than 200 gymnasts from 13 different clubs across NDP grades 1 – 7.
In the Women’s 11-12 individual event Molly McMillan gave a very skilful performance to take the silver medal place and a qualifying score that earned her a place at the regional finals in March.
In the 13+ Male’s individual event, Sam Claydon showed great technique and determination to take the gold medal; again with a qualifying score that earned him a place at the regional finals.
Flyers’ head coach Jacqui Gevaux said: “Billingshurst is the newest of our venues and our gymnasts demonstrated superb form and skills and should be proud of the part they played in representing the club in such a competitive arena. As well as achieving podium places, they showed a hunger for success which augers well for the rest of the season and on into 2016.”
