Golden start for Ch­es­ney

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Football -

PRIDE of place at the Swifts Floor and Vault Com­pe­ti­tion held at Swal­lows Leisure Cen­tre, Sit­ting­bourne went to Ash­ford gym­nast Ch­es­ney Swans­bor­ough, pic­tured right, who won the tough 10-year-old age group in style. Ch­es­ney is one of a group of Ash­ford gym­nasts com­pet­ing for the Pe­ga­sus Gym­nas­tics Club from Bearsted. At the higher bronze level Bethan Cooper’s out­stand­ing vault helped her to sil­ver po­si­tion in the 12/13 age group with Chloe Camp­bell pick­ing up bronze in the 10/11-year-old group. Ac­cu­rate tech­nique and qual­ity con­trol on floor cou­pled with dy­namic vaults with se­cure land­ing saw sev­eral medal winning per­for­mances. At In­ter­me­di­ate Level both Kirsty Keep in the 14 years’ and Suriyah Bhamidi­marri in the 11 years’ age group took well de­served sil­ver medals. It was a great start to the sea­son for this group of Pe­ga­sus gym­nasts and the club are en­cour­ag­ing the next crop of top gym­nasts by hold­ing satel­lite gym

ses­sions in Ash­ford.
