Amelie’s best of Bri­tish

GYM­NAS­TICS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

FARN­HAM Com­mon gym­nast Amelie Mor­gan has be­come a Bri­tish cham­pion for the third time at the ten­der age of 11.

The Slough Gym­nas­tics young­ster (pic­tured) was a win­ner at the Bri­tish Com­pul­sory Lev­els Cham­pi­onships in Ip­swich – an elite gym­nas­tics com­pe­ti­tion at the high­est level for her age group.

It is no fluke ei­ther – the Bea­cons­field High pupil puts in plenty of graft by train­ing 26 hours a week at her club.

This comes hot on the foot­steps of an­other im­pres­sive re­cent per­for­mance by Mor­gan at the English Cham­pi­onships.

Com­pet­ing as a first year Espoir gym­nast, mean­ing she was up against not only girls her own age group but the year older too, she fin­ished as an over­all sil­ver medal­ist.

Gym­nas­tic suc­cess seems to run in the fam­ily too, as Amelie’s twin brother Finn re­cently com­peted at the south­ern re­gional fi­nals, where he was also a win­ner.
