ChronicleLive – Sport – Grassroots – Gymnastics: Starlets shine as they take on world

A GROUP of young gymnasts from the North East returned home successful from the Sports Acrobatics World Championships in Wroclaw, Poland.

In the men’s pairs event, Alex Houston, 17, from Consett and Timothy Pritchard, 14, from Durham collected a silver medal – being edged out of the gold medal position by Russia.

In the women’s pairs competition, Jasmine Danby, 19, from Durham and Chelsea Fisher, 13, from Darlington finished agonisingly just out of the medals in fourth position.

All four are based at the Deerness Valley Gymnastics Club in Durham City.
