Isabel see­ing dou­ble train­ing with in­spi­ra­tional GB sis­ters

Young gym­nast en­joys ‘fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence’

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

Isabel was first in­spired to take up gym­nas­tics at school by for­mer Bri­tish cham­pion, and Com­mon­wealth Games and World Cham­pi­onships gym­nast Laura Tim­mins, who was for­merly head of gym­nas­tics at Malt­mans.

Cairine Cran­field-Thom­son, who took over from Tim­mins at Malt­man’s, has car­ried on that good work and the enor­mous amount of time and ef­fort she puts in with the girls is cer­tainly pay­ing off.

Malt­man’s have been na­tional schools’ cham­pi­ons at U9, U10 and U11 level and Isabel is a mem­ber of the U11A squad, along with Clau­dia Mowat, Grace Short, Tara Sadlier and Olivia Rowan.

The school has also qual­i­fied for the fi­nals of the In­de­pen­dent Schools Gym­nas­tics As­so­ci­a­tion, at Kent Col­lege, and the Mi­lano Com­pe­ti­tion (na­tional schools floor and vault) at the na­tional train­ing fa­cil­ity, in Stokeon-Trent.
