In two separate competitions (Club A) Hannah won the tumbling competition with scores of 29.17 and 29.20. The artistic competition required Hannah to perform on the beam, floor, vault and bar. Despite an unfortunate mistake on the parallel bars, Hannah finished in second place and now looks forward to the Nationals in September.

Men's Artistic (Grade A) requires each competitor to perform in six disciplines; floor, vault, rings, high bar, pommel and vault. Despite toning down his routines to protect an injury, Reid finished in third place and performed magnificently.
Well done to Hannah, Penny and Reid for
some outstanding performances and just reward for the hours of
training they put in each week.
