European Championships - Oct 2007
Our 2 trios (Jo, Amber, Abi and Cath, Rosie, Ellie) performed 2 routines over two days of qualifications finishing in 3rd
and 4th place. Both trios did amazingly well and deserved to take part in the finals, however the rules state that only one
partnership from each nation may qualify for the finals; so Cath's trio were unfortunately knocked out of the competition
at this point as they were one ranking behind Jo's partnership. Jo's trio competed their balance routine in the final and
took the silver medal behind Russia. It was a fantastic competition and both trios did themselves proud.
1st English Acrobatic Championships - 6th Oct 2007
3 partnerships competed at the FIG 11-16 event. Jo, Amber and Abi, Cath, Rosie and Ellie and Chris and Rosie.
It was Chris and Rosie's first competition and they were only performing one routine-with the focus of their competition
been 'experience'! They performed a good routine with some small errors but still finished 2nd in the balance exercise.
They show real potential for the future. Cath, Rosie and Ellie gained the highest score of the competition in their balance
exercise;they too only performed one routine. Jo, Amber and Abi, despite some uncharacteristic errors still finished in first
place. The two trios can now use this competition to build on ready for the Europeans!
European Trials June and July 2007
Our 2 trios of Cath, Rosie and Ellie and Jo, Amber and Abi performed exceptionally well in both trials. Jo's trio finishing
.50 ahead in trial one and Cath's trio finishing .05 ahead in trial two. This means that they finished the event in =1st place;
which is incredible considering they performed 4 routines! This amazing result means that both trios have been selected for
the GB team. They will represent the country in the European Championships in October. WELL DONE !!!!!! Go Team GB !!!!!!
May 2007 - NDP National Finals, Stoke on Trent.
All our qualifiers from the Regional Prelims were amongst the top performers at the competition. The trio of Steph, Laura
and Hannah won GOLD at NDP level 1 and achieved the highest score of the whole competition. Their routine was almost faultless,
their elegance and presentation was immaculate and they are ones to watch in the future! Our partnerships of Chris and Abi,
Charmaine and Danielle and Katy, Katie and Megan all took SILVER medals. Katy, Katie and Megan gave the best performance of
their careers so far, they nailed all their moves and gave a stunning show in both routines. Charmaine and Danielle performed
with charisma and gave a very strong technical performance. Despite achieving the silver, it was a slightly disappointing
result for Chris and Abi who made some mistakes in the routine which cost them the gold. Sophie, Illanah and Zoe competed
in the NDP Level 2 event which was a really tough battle between the 6 top partnerships. The trio did amazingly well to take
the BRONZE medal. Nicole, Becky and Lucy gave a good performance at NDP level 1 to finish 6th.
April 2007 - Prep A and B South of England Finals

captivated the audience with a cheeky routine to beat their competition in Prep B.

routines they finished the event as British Champions. Both partnerships will now take place in the European Championship
selection trials later in the year. Well Done Girls!!!
