CHAL­FONT Gym­nas­tics Academy can now boast two county cham­pi­ons, as well as other medal­ists, fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful re­turn to the Bucks County In and Out of Age com­pe­ti­tion.

A squad of eight girls, coached by Lee Fearn, trav­elled to Mil­ton Keynes to take part, the first time in five years Chal­font had sent a team to the tour­na­ment.

In a high field of gym­nasts, the re­sults were out­stand­ing, and all the girls qual­i­fied for the south­ern re­gion com­pe­ti­tion, which takes place at the end of Septem­ber.

Newly crowned county cham­pion Imo­gen Rowan ex­celled her­self over the four pieces in the level three se­nior cat­e­gory, tak­ing both the al­laround gold with a fan­tas­tic fi­nal score and the gold medal on the vault.

In the same round, Daisy Bar­rows took the over­all sil­ver and landed the gold medal on floor, achiev­ing the high­est score of the whole day.

In level four se­nior, Lily Lit­tle took both over­all gold and first place on the bars, while Emily Totty, re­cov­er­ing from a re­cent in­jury, brushed off any con­cerns to take home bronze over­all.

In level four ju­nior, Is­abel Whit­burn grabbed gold on vault and bronze on bars, while Kate Hardy, who was com­pet­ing for the first time, took bronze on the beam.

An­other com­pet­ing for the first time, Han­nah Olivier, achieved a fan­tas­tic score on the floor while Amelie Yalden, com­pet­ing in level five ju­nior, claimed bronze on both the floor and beam, adding to Chal­font’s over­all medal haul.

The club will now be fo­cus­ing on train­ing for the South­ern Re­gion com­pe­ti­tion, which en­com­passes a large num­ber of clubs from the south­ern coun­ties of the UK.
