Tobie and Korben

On the 4th – 5th March the Goresbrook Leisure Centre, Ripple Road, Dagenham hosted the Gymnova London Open Gymnastics Championships. Friday 4th launched the event with the Development Open Championship section of the event which had a field of 71 boys taking part.

Congratulations to both Korben and Tobie who both took gold in the InAge and Under & Over Age category respectively. Korben also took individual apparatus bronze on floor, gold on pommels & rings, silver on vault, bronze on parallel bars and gold on High Bar.

This is an excellent start on the road to excellence for Tobie at age 7 years and for Korben at age 8 years. Well done also to Daiyaan who competed in the under Age championships along with Tobie, his first national level competition and finishing in a creditable 8th position.

Final congratulations go to Joe who competed on three pieces due to a shoulder injury that whilst nearing a full recovery has limited work for the last 4 weeks. Joe competed in the Clayton Bolt u.14 section of the London Open on Floor, Pommels and Vault. Joe pulled excellent results out on these pieces scoring a second on floor; first on pommels and =7th on vault, a good result.
