Tumble Regional Team Finals & NDP Qualifier

On the 26th March, Swifts tumblers competed at the National Qualifier in Hastings. They competed in the hope of qualifying for the Regional Team Finals (representing the South East) and NDP Qualifiers later this year. Swifts were proud to have 5 gymnasts qualify; Scarlett, Vinnie, Peter, Abbie and Brooke. The gymnasts traveled down to Birmingham on the 16th June for Podium training at the arena. Peter unfortunately had to withdraw from the competition the day before competition through injury. The gymnasts all competed well and did themselves and their region proud. First up was Vinnie competing in the Level 1 category. He placed 9th, narrowly missing out on the required top 8 finish to Qualify for Nationals. He was then followed by Abbie competing in the Level 3 category. She faced a very tight competition. Abbie placed 15th with just a mark between her and the qualifying top 8! Last up was Brooke, competing in the Level 5 category. Brooke remained in the Bronze medal position until the very last round. She finished in 4th position meaning that she has qualified for the National Finals! A huge congratulations to all that competed!
