10 year old Abbie Clifton from Horley has been awarded the coveted “Fay Greene Award for Progress in Gymnastics” trophy for her outstanding achievements throughout the last year.
The trophy is awarded annually by Springfit Gymnastics and Trampolining club to the gymnast who, in the opinion of the coaches, has made the most progress in the previous 12 months.
The award has been well deserved for Abbie who has shown great enthusiasm for the sport, and has gained many new moves in the last year. Training only 3 hours a week, Abbie has been able to achieve back and front somersaults on the floor, and is keen to improve her acrobatic abilities along with vaulting technique.
Abbie said of her achievement: “It’s really great to finally get the trophy. I really enjoy gymnastics, and now I can see my name on the cup alongside all the other great gymnasts at the club.”
