We would like to congratulate Emily Gouveia Correia on being awarded the Elite Gymnastics Trophy for 2017.
Head Coach Plamen and his team have been astounded by the MASSIVE progress Emily has made in one year. Until a few months ago Emily had only been training with Springfit for one hour a week and she moved quickly from our Intermediate to Advanced class on a Saturday at our Oakwood training centre and in September she invited along with her twin sister, Isabel, to our Elite Training session.
Despite her tender age of only 9 years and small stature, she has amassed a great number of skills such as being able to handspring ‘5 High Vault’, back handspring and free cartwheel and so it no surprise that she won a well deserved Bronze medal in the hardest category (Grade 6) in our Floor and Vault competition in November 2017. This was in addition to the Gold medal she took home from the trampette competition in July – being able to front somersault off a trampette is no mean feat and is worthy of a Gold!
It is not only her skills and huge improvements that have brought her to the attention of the coaches, Head Coach Plamen described her behaviour in class as always being “fantastic” and that it is a pleasure to have her in his classes.
Again WELL DONE Emily and keep up the good work!
