A GYMNASTICS club has a lot to celebrate after three of their teams beat off stiff competition at the Team Gym British Championships and another gymnast was selected to represent Great Britain in Slovenia next month.
All three teams from Majestic Gymnastics in Longwell Green had a fantastic outcome with the Junior Team, aged 13-15, now ranking fifth in the country and the Mini Team, aged seven to 11, coming fourth.
The competition in Liverpool involved a 2.5 minute floor routine, tumbling and trampette.
Meanwhile 17-year-old Tia Collins, who competes for the senior women’s team, will be travelling to Slovenia to represent Great Britain in the European team gym competition in October. Tia has been training at Majestic for 12 years and this is her first time competing for the country. The club, which has expanded twice since it opened, are over the moon with their gymnasts’ latest results and hope to go from strength to strength.
Gymnast coach and director of the club, Candice Fry, who has 17 years of experience in gymnastics, said: “We are so proud of everyone who took part at the championships. They all worked so hard and really deserved their places.
“All of our teams had to be invited to the event by achieving a specific score in another competition which all three of our teams did.
“All our students work so hard and put in a lot of practice so they really deserve to get good scores.”
She added: “We are also very excited for Tia. She works really hard and deserves her place in Slovenia. The whole club are right behind her.”
Majestic Gymnastics, which is situated in Aldermoor Way, has nearly 1,000 members of  all ages taking part in gymnastics every week.
Along with recreational gymnastics the club also holds holiday clubs, preschool classes and birthday parties.
