Taeja started her competition season at the Alpha Factor UK invitational, held at the Wiltshire School of Gymnastics saturday on 8th September 2012. Fifteen competitors took part in the Level 3 10 year old category. Taeja finished 2nd overall with a score of 48.00pts, she was the highest scorer on Beam with 13.7pts and also received a Gold certificate for having low deductions on Bars.
Taeja’s Floor routine saw some errors with a poorly executed first tumble; she did however fight back and compete her tucked Tsukahara for the first time, all of which lead to her creditable silver medal finish.
An excellent season debut, well done.
