Medal Success at Trampoline & DMT National Open 2021

Four Scots were among the medal winners at the British Trampoline and Tumbling National Age Group Open Competition at Telford International.

Morgan James from Banchory Trampoline and DMT Club won gold in the double mini-trampoline FIG performance level women 17-21 final, with a total score of 65.300.

There was a silver medal in the men’s DMT FIG performance level 15-16 for Ethan Cunningham (Jump Gymnastics Club) after he scored a total of 66.800. Ava Fettes (Banchory Trampoline & DMT Club) completed the set for the discipline by winning bronze in the 15-16yrs women’s FIG performance level.

Sarah Gallacher from Sparta Trampoline Club earned a silver medal in the trampoline women 15-16 FIG performance level final, improving on her ranking from third in the qualification rounds with her best score of the day, 47.730.

Speaking after her podium success, Sarah said: “I enjoyed the competition. It was great to be back performing and the bonus of a medal was even better! I’m looking forward to the pathway at the weekend.”

Sarah’s mother Ruth added: “I just want to say a big thank you to the Scottish Gymnastics performance team and the pathway programme. It shows that the pathway is doing the job. Sarah was so mentally prepared for the weekend and presented herself so well.”

There were notable performances across trampoline, double mini-trampoline and tumbling with many gymnasts qualifying for finals.

Performance manager for non-Olympic disciplines, Wendy Purdie, said: “It was good to see so many Scottish competitors at the weekend and well done to them all given, the past 18 months with interrupted training and lockdowns. To come back and be able to compete at this level is a major achievement for them.”

Selections for the teams for the World Championships and the World Age Group Competition will be announced by British Gymnastics next week.
