Alton crown new British Trampoline Champion!
We are delighted to announce that Stuart Sharpe became a British Champion this past weekend! The 2015 Trampoline, Tumbling and Double-Mini Trampoline British Championships took place in Liverpool and Stuart was competing in the finals of the Disability Mens Category 1 National A group, where he produced his highest score of the season to win the the Gold medal.
It is a terrific achievement and caps off an incredible season for Stu who, having returned to action after a year off, had earlier in the year won the Double Mini-Trampoline Level 6 group at the National Finals.
With their successful performances throughout the season, both Stuart and Dan had successfully qualified for the Finals. While unfortunately Dan wasn’t able to make it, their successes, along with the other competitors in the Disability Trampoline category, are a real inspiration, and a testament to the hard work that both the gymnasts and their coaches put in.
The day was capped off when the presentations took place where, not only did Stuart get presented with his medal and trophy, but the coaches were also recognised, where “proud coach” Sylvia was also invited up to receive her trophy. Huge congratulations to the both of them!
These results also mean that in 2015 Alton Trampoline Club has seen members achieve medals at the British Championships, the National Finals, as well as the National Schools Finals, in a quite extraordinary year for the club – for a club run solely by volunteers this is a real success story and a remarkable achievement for its members!
