REGIONAL GRADING COMPETITION
29 March 2009 saw Richard’s Trampoline Club attending the Eastern
regional Grading competition in Harlow.
With a team of 16 competitors representing the club, everyone was
looking forward to a good day. For
some it was their first competition, whereas others were looking to
improve upon their previous achievements.
Regional D Lee Meakin did some good routines, after a year out he is
finally starting to get his form back.
He finished in 3rd place, but he knows he can do
better still. Rosannamay
Cannon started with a great set routine, placing her in 2nd
position going through to the second round.
Her voluntary routine wasn’t quite so good, and she lacked
difficulty so dropped down to 5th place overall.
Claire Fennell has recently joined the club, and after a nervous
start she got through her routines and finished in 8th place.
Lizzie Mercer made a very uncharacteristic error and this left
her in 16th place.
Regional E Laura Burns showed great improvement since her last
competition, she’s bouncing much higher now.
She went through to the finals in 1st place, but an
error moved her down to 7th overall.
Scott Crowhurst only just missed out on a medal in 4th
place and Levi Rimmer finished in 8th, both of them showing
good improvement since their last competition also.
Regional F Hannah Rayfield was very pleased to successfully complete
both of her routines. She
easily gained the required mark to move up to the next grade, and she
finished in 2nd place. Clare
Kiss was competing for the first time at this level, despite her nerves
