Triumph in Telford | EQ 1 Report


Jumpers had a total of 34 entries for the first qualifier of the English Series. There are two qualifiers for gymnasts to try and post a good enough score to claim them a ranking position to qualify for the English Championships. Gymnasts have to complete their routine or pass that counts and be ranked in the top 16 for trampoline and top 12 for DMT.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


Jumpers had 8 entries for DMT, 5 in Silver and 3 in Gold Levels. Within Silver we had Sophie Freeman competing in the 11 to 12 girls section and she completed both her first two passes well but encountered some costly landing deductions to finish in 17th position. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Mark Richardson and Lucas Hill-Moorey were taking part in the 11 to 12 boys section and both completed their first two passes well only separated by 0.3, within the final they both had to complete one more pass, Mark did well with a sore ankle and stayed in the box to be very close to a medal in 4th position. Lucas showed great lines and sticking his landing to finish in 2nd position and bring home a medal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Canay Sagbasan and Elizabeth Lowings were taking part in the Silver 17+ Ladies section, Elizabeth was unlucky to have a cold all week and did well to even compete with very little training. She managed to do her passes but struggled with landing them to finish in 11th position. Canay had a good first pass, landing her double for the first time, she squeezed into the final, but couldn’t land her final double and finished in 7th position. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Within the Gold Level we had Summer Denniss taking part in the 15 to 16 girls section and hit both first passes well to qualify her to the final. Within the final a slight tuck of her double straight resulted in a repeat and a finishing position of 7th. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Reece Buck was in the Senior Mens section and it’s fair to say it wasn’t Reece’s day. He has had such success and improvement recently but today things didn’t go to plan, he did hold his head up high and keep going which is testament to his winning attitude. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Emily Smith was in the Senior Ladies section and had a great prelim round finishing in 2nd position landing her passes, within her final she over rotated her mount to bail out of her dismount, Emily ended up in 9th position. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


Trampoline Silver day saw 11 entries including some fresh faces to the national scene. Within the 9 to 10 classes we had Olivia Breaker for the girls and Drew Bates for the boys. Olivia produced two good routines showing strong time of flights, this helped her finish in 8th position. Drew had a slight confusion in his first routine but recovered well in his second routine to finish in 8th position. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

11 to 12 boys saw Lucas Hill-Moorey and Mark Richardson return, Mark was unfortunate in his first routine to not land his 10th skill, he fought hard in his second though to climb up to 13th position. Lucas competed a new difficulty in his second routine for the first time ever to help him achieve a 9th place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Eme Ward took part in the 13 to 14 girls section and held her own well and also competed a new skill for the first time, she ended up in 13th position. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ella Monk was on her own in the 15 to 16 girls section and produced two good routines with some good difficulty to hold a 7th position. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The 17+ Ladies section saw 5 of our gymnasts take part, Alice Feazey-Noble who had only recently come back from Australia, so jet lag was in full swing, managed to piece together 2 good routines, encountered a landing deduction and still finish in 14th position. Canay Sagbasan showed great time of flight but had a few wobbles to finish in 19th position, Emma Brown started with a solid first routine but encountered some travel in the second and got stopped by the side pad, she finished in 20th, Cree Kitney overcame her nerves and competed her double back somersault twice to finish in 21st position, Dilara had a problem in her first routine, but didn’t give up and fought hard to finish her second routine and finish in 24th position. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The Trampoline Gold day started with Sophie Yates and Joseph Watson in the Youth sections. Sophie held great execution and HD in both routines to end up with a 3rd position and add to our medal tally. Joseph put two good routines together and in a tight group finished in 6th position. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ella Bahamondes-Tedham was in the 13 – 14 section and after a nervy first routine, climbed well to almost land a medal and finish in 4th position. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Holly Keeping and Mia Kelham were in the 15 to 16 girls section and Holly was extremely close to hitting her Time of flight target in her first routine which helped her finish in 11th position. Mia Kelham fought some demons from the previous competition and completed both routines to finish in 15th. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Kian Terry and Jayden Boreham represented in the Junior section, Jayden did two good routines really fighting against some strong competition to finish in 9th place. Kian produced a great second routine to be agonisingly close to a medal in 4th position. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Louise Brownsey was in the Senior Ladies section and didn’t have the best day at the office, two costly mistakes resulted in a 15th place finish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Within the Senior Mens class, we had Josh Constable put together a great routine and jump his PB from 51 to 54 to finish in 6th position. Ashley Reed held her his nerve and constant pain from his body to piece together not one but two whole routines and finish in 9th position. James Ferrari was unfortunate in his 10th skill to clip the end deck and be marked out of 9, this still got him a 15th position. Tyler Boreham put his routine together well after suffering some back issues to hold a 17th place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


Within the synchro competition we had 3 pairs with 5 Jumpers participants and Millie Harvey from Tolworth partnering up with Louise Brownsey. Mia Kelham and Holly Keeping were in the Junior Section and put together two good routines although synchro suffered slightly to finish in 5th place. Ashley Reed and James Ferrari had the game plan of simple but beautiful and produced a great first routine to land a 2nd position. Louise and her partner from Tolworth, Millie, produced great routines combining all elements to finish in 2nd position as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We would also like to acknowledge our judging contingent of Martin Laws and Mark Baker, judging all weekend so our guys could take part. James Coomber, Ollie Reis, Ashley Reed and James Ferrari headed up our coaching team and worked tirelessly running all over the place. We also always like to shout out our team that stayed at Jumpers Rebound Centre covering all the normal classes to keep the centre going. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

All in all not a bad weekend, roll on qualifier two, for second chances or nervous waits to see if their positions are enough!
