The men's artistic programme has gone from strength to strength over the last year, with sucess at all levels of competition nationally. The positive training environment and atmosphere within the gym was a huge factor in the return of Sam Oldham, who is excited to be part of the club as he prepares for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. We are also excited regarding the appointment of Sergey Sizhanov as our Assistant Head of discipline, Sergey was the Great Britain Junior National coach and a driving force in the success of the GB men's programme internationally. 

We anticipate Sam Oldham will be present at the trial to offer his input and support for the boy's.

The morning saw the youngest age category (10) with Amy Harper, Erin Scott, Lara Hill, JoJo Darby and Lucy Willis competing for the academy. 

Starting on Vault, all gymnasts produced solid vaults to start the competition, Erin just missing out on a medal in 4th place with her ½ on ½ off. Bars saw clean routines again from everyone but without the giants the scores were lower than some competitors. Moving to Beam where Amy was the only Notts gymnast to produce a performance without any falls, finishing in 7th place on the apparatus. Finally a chance to show off on floor, once again no falls but  some routines lacked the skills of some gymnasts reducing the final scores.

Overall a good performance for the gymnasts competing at this level for the first time, Amy finishing in 11th place from a field of 30 competitors.

The afternoon saw the Olivia Coventy (11 years), Jessie Mitchell (12/13) and Tanith Beresford (14+).

It was a good start for all on Bars, Jessie managing to successfully compete the routine she had only put together on Friday. All went clean and then moved to Beam, a fall each for Tanith and Jessie but Olivia went through with no falls to set up the next apparatus, Floor. Once again it was clean routines all round as was the case on Vault with all gymnasts successfully competing ½ on ½ off.

Olivia gained reward for her clean competition finishing 3rd overall & 3rd on Bars & Beam, Tanith just missed out on an overall medal finishing 4th but did pick up individual apparatus medals picking up Silver on Vault & Bars and Bronze on Floor. Jessie routines were controlled as she calmed her usual nerves producing one of her best competition performances.
