Jazmin Filer, Aoife Bolland, Leona Britton, Grace Till and Kiera Bridgman achieved Distinction at Grade 6, and Abbie Brown at Grade 5.
Special congratulations go to Leona, who placed 1st overall out of 37 gymnasts at Grade 6, and Jazmin Filer, who placed 1st on beam out of the same 37 gymnasts. Congratulations gymnasts, coaches and WWG!
WWG’s West Country League gymnasts finished their 2016 season in style at the finals of the competition on 26th and 27th November. A League gymnasts Tabitha Coleman, Jenna Caddy, Mya Brown, Leona Britton, Talia Brown and Mia Pardoe achieved third place out of 7 teams in the last match, earning them 3rd place overall out of those 7 teams for 2016.
B Team Catherine Hall, Jessica Richardson, Hannah Ovens, Georgia Smith and Isabelle Kerbey came 4th out of 8 teams at the final and 5th out of 8 teams for the year. These results are especially encouraging as both teams are young for the requirements of their respective leagues, and their final scores would have earned them medals in some of the higher divisions. Special congratulations go to Tabitha Coleman, who placed third overall out of 39 gymnasts in Division 3 A League, and to Catherine Hall who came 1st overall out of 42 gymnasts in Division 3 B League.
27 WWG gymnasts competed at the Wiltshire Grades competition, held at WWG, on Sunday 20th November. All 27 gymnasts passed their Grade, with 7 gymnasts achieving Distinctions: more than any other Club at the event!
Special congratulations to Ava Britten and Jasmine Stone (1st and 3rd at Grade 4), Aoife Bolland (2nd at Grade 3), Tabitha Coleman, Leona Britton and Mya Brown (1st, 2nd and 3rd at Grade 2) and Isabelle Kerbey (1st at Grade 1).

West Wilts crowned two new Club Champions at the annual Development Gymnastics Championships on Saturday 5th November 2016.
Mia Pardoe earned the least deductions over four pieces of apparatus to become the Under 11 Club Champion, and Georgia Laver became Over 11 Club Champion.
Both gymnasts have had injury problems over the last year, with Mia breaking her arm and Georgia dislocating her elbow, so these results were hard earned and well deserved. Well done girls!
