Milano Team Trio National Gymnastic Finals
On Saturday March 12th St Faith’s had four boys representing the Eastern Region at the National Milano Team trio Finals in Stoke on Trent. The boys concerned were all participating in the U11 age group despite all being still in year 5; they were Louis N, Finn H, Freddie G and Oliver H. Having traveled up the night before and staying overnight in a hotel, the boys performed excellently on Saturday being well rested.
They outscored their regional scores in both floor and vault and were actually lying 3rd out of the 16 teams competing, having scored as a team 40.550 on the floor and 44.400 on vault to give a team score of 84.950. Louis N had an amazing day coming 1st for our team in both floor and vault. He was ably supported by Oliver and Finn on the floor who both gave impressive performances and also by Finn and Freddie on the vault, where they performed beautifully on their through vaults. That only left the group sequence to be done in the afternoon and they gave a solid performance, but unfortunately it wasn’t quite good enough and we eventually finished a highly creditable 5th in the country with a total of 108.500. Considering they can all compete again in this age group next year it was an incredible effort from the boys and they did themselves and the school proud. As a group of children to take away, they were polite, well mannered and really excellent company throughout. Huge thanks to Miss McNally for taking them and coaching them and next year we will aim to bring one of those medals backBack to all news
