Trampoline Club had 3 representatives at the British Championships on
Stratton was desperately hoping for a medal today, after finishing in 6th
place after his last British Championships in 2006. However after dislocating his shoulder just weeks beforehand,
he was not fully prepared for today.
He made a fantastic start though with his set routine, and was
awarded with some good scores that put him in 3rd place. Moving onto the voluntary routine, Elliot struggled to bounce
in the middle of the trampoline. He
rapidly reduced the difficulty level to ensure he could finish the
routine, but this left him down in 11th place over all.
was Nick Ledwold’s first time at the British Championships, and he
handled the pressure extremely well.
He performed 2 good routines, with just a small amount of travel. There was slightly more travel in his voluntary routine, but
he made it through without having to reduce his difficulty level.
He finished in 18th place.
A fantastic experience though for him at the tender age of 13,
and now he knows what to expect I’m sure he’ll improve upon this
