The trampolining team from MK Gymnastics competed against the best in the country at the Trampoline and Tumbling Regional Team Final and NDP qualification event in Peterborough and their talent shone through.
The boys surpassed themselves gaining three out of three golds.
Isaac Cheney’s polished performances at Level 3, 9-10, left his competitors far behind; Callum Hiett’s proficient performances, gained him first place at Level 5, 11-12; and Isaac Taylor’s high scoring graceful routines earned him first place at Level 6, 11-12.
Despite facing stiff competition, the girls held their nerve. Katy Daniels comfortably took second place at Level 2, 11-12. Chloe Sinfield was placed fourth at Level 3, 9-10, missing out on a medal position by just 0.1 of a mark.
Natalie Cooper’s high scores saw her placed sixth in a tightly fought contest with less than two points separating the top six competitors at NDP Level 4, 11-12.
Unfortunately Ellie Chapman, the youngest member of the team, competing at Level 1, 9-10, wasn’t placed due to a technical error partway through her first routine.
Overall the team‘s scores made an important contribution to Southern Region’s third place. All six, joined by Jenna Torrie, go forward to the NDP final in Telford in a few weeks.
Coach Paul Wolfe said: “The team were a credit to Milton Keynes and played an important part in the Southern Region success. I am delighted to be coaching some of the top performing young trampolinists in the country.”
And these stars of the future need a helping hand. To reach their full potential they need to train on Olympic-standard trampolines.
Unfortunately top class equipment comes with a top class price tag with new trampolines costing over £6,500 each.
