Kim Beattie (pictured with coach Melanie Stewart Wills) from Banchory Trampoline & DMT Club claimed the British title and gold medal in the Senior Women’s Elite Level DMT competition on 134.200. Kim’s victory was more notable, given her preparations for the championships weren’t ideal. She said:
"It's been such a tough year, I've battled through injury, I've lost some skills, it's just been really tough, so to finish the season off like this is just amazing. I was just amazed, I just started crying!"

Two Foot Higher’s Fraser McLeod earnt the British title on the DMT in the 15-16 Men’s age group, for an impressive fourth consecutive year.
