Deerness Gymnastics Academy, in Ushaw Moor

NORTH-East gymnasts have won four medals in an international contest.

Tumblers from Deerness Gymnastics Academy, in Ushaw Moor, County Durham, represented Great Britain in competition in Denmark last week (October 2-6).

British champion Steven Gilmore took a bronze in the 17-18 years category; while Georgina Clayton, also a British champion, won gold, Rachel Davies took silver and Matilda Hamilton picked up bronze in the 15-16 years section.

Ryan Drury finished sixth in the 15-16 category.

Glen Wharton, the academy’s head of tumbling, said: “Tumbling is a relatively new discipline for our club but we have been able to achieve a lot in a short amount of time and it’s a real achievement for the club to continue to represent Great Britain and for our gymnasts to win medals in internationals.”

Seven Deerness tumblers have been selected to represent Great Britain at the Tumbling World Championships in Bulgaria in November.
