Perfect ten for Deerness Gymnasts From The Northern Echo


IT was a perfect ten for a leading North-East gymnastics club, as all ten members returned from a British championship with gold medals.

Deerness Gymnastics Academy, based in Ushaw Moor, County Durham, took gold in the 11-16 Men’s Group, 12-18 Women’s Pair, 12-18 Mixed Pair and Senior Men’s Pair categories at the British Championships, held in Stoke-on-Trent last weekend (April 13-14).

The ten winners were: Alex Houston, 20, from Consett; Tim Pritchard, 17, from Belmont; Abbi Greaves, 12, from Ushaw Moor; Chelsea Fisher, 16, from Darlington; Millie Nesbitt, 14, from Durham; Liam Sneath, 16, from Spennymoor; Michael Gill, 14, from Ponteland; Nathan Brady, 14, from Durham; Stuart Napier, 14, from Durham; and Finn Gavin, 11, from Alnwick.

Stuart Thompson, the academy’s head of acrobatics, said: “I’m really proud of them all and they fully deserve to be British champions.

“It is fantastic to see that all the hard work and the hours of training in the gym has paid off.”
