Boys from Summerfields Gymnastics Club were given another opportunity to take part in an all-male competition at Dover.

Outstanding performance of the day was from nine-year-old Phoenix Williams at intermediate level in the 9-11 age group.

Showing strength and flexibility, he executed a well-controlled floor and dynamic vault to win the gold medal with a total score of 15.450.

At bronze level, Henry Hemmett was unfortunate to sustain an injury when warming up his front tucked somersault on floor. He bravely continued the competition, but was unable to land his moves as steadily as usual and was disappointed with his fifth place, although he still achieved a decent score of 15.350.

Jake Payne continued with his good quality work at advanced level, gaining sixth place with a score of 15.350. Also performing well, but missing out on podium places at novice level were Louis McGowan and Noah Linfield.
