Young gymnasts excel in finals on national stage
EUAN Cox and Finlay Lincoln played leading roles as the South East Region Level 1 squad won the team title at the National Set Work Finals in Birmingham.
Euan, from Singleton, and Finlay, from Egerton, who are members of Maidstone’s Pegasus Gymnastics Club, also enjoyed individual success. Nine-year-old Euan won gold, 1.5 marks ahead of Finlay (silver), with the highlight his perfect 10.000 in the parallel bars. Euan also registered 8.950 in the floor category, a second in pommel with 9.600, first in rings with 9.500, joint second in vault on 9.600 and joint first in the high bar with 9.500. Eight-year-old Finlay won the pommel with 9.700 and enjoyed joint second place in the vault (9.450) as well as third-place finishes in the floor (9.250) and parallel bars (9.450).
