Last Saturday 27th February saw children from clubs throughout the Surrey area come together to compete for medals at a trampoline competition held by the Saturn V Association.
Spectators on the balcony at Moor House school in Oxted showed their appreciation for the athletes as each child took their turn on the stage to perform routines to the best of their ability. Some of the eventual winners were taking part for the first time, and enjoyed a fantastic atmosphere as parents and family members cheered on the competitors.
There were seven separate categories encompassing all abilities, and culminated in a crowd-pleasing synchronised pairs routine. The gold medals in this category were taken home by members of Springfit Club
from Horley, adding to their three other Gold medals tally of the afternoon.
Members of Coulsdon-based Anti-Gravity trampoline club took home four medals as well as placing second and third in the synchronised round, and Pointers club in Caterham took away all the medals in the advanced
level group. The impressive somersaulting and tight form of the higher level athletes included a stunning performance by Abigail Barker (13yrs) who won top spot with an unprecedented score of 19.10
out of 20.
The judges were suitably impressed with the high standards on show, and offered their appreciation afterwards, thanking everyone involved, and conveying congratulations to all.
