National Grade 4 Yorkshire championships

Round 4 saw our senior Bailey in the frame. Ellie had the unenviable task of going round on her own, but that wasn’t going to stop her. Stepping up to National grades, she competed in a very strong field and a large competition of 51 gymnasts.

She started on floor, performing her routine with that Bailey flair! She missed a top 10 position on floor by a mere 0.05 and delivered the 7th highest score on this piece. A superb achievement for a new routine in a National grade.

Despite not getting a couple of holds on range she ploughed forwards to still achieve 11.7. Vault flew to a fantastic 12.550.

Then to the dreaded bars. There was no stopping this gymnast, having struggled a little with the giants in the gym, she knew how much warm up she needed and exactly where to find that extra something. Ellie was going to get those giants round from her cast come what may. A slight stall at the top saw this gymnast use everything she could to bring those giants down the right way, and she did!

Finish on beam with a flourish and the artistry that she can deliver so well. All to secure a very solid commendation and a top half final score in her first National grade.
