Milton Keynes Tumblers have had an amazing start to the British Championship season, with 14 out of 19 already qualifying for the finals.

Taking on some of the top gymnasts in the country at the Ricoh Arena, Robert Missen and Ayo Adewumi will join Malakai Bojang, Jake Parry, Naana Oppon and Gabriella Miles in May at their very first National Squad training camp to be held at Lilleshall National Sports Centre.

Milton Keynes was said to be the club to beat after the youngsters who performed on the Saturday took the limelight and set the bar high for the rest coming into the event on the Sunday. Naana Oppon won the 9-10 girls category just pushing Gabriella Miles into 4th so a great performance from both these girls. Malakai Bojang dominated the 9-10 boys with a very impressive score for the win.
