Trampoline & DMT | 2023 Championships
It was six of one and half a dozen of the other at the 2023 Scottish trampoline and double-mini trampoline championships. The women’s DMT and men’s trampoline champions both earned their sixth Scottish title.
World championship multi-medal winner Kim Beattie from Banchory was top of the podium on Saturday. Murray Findlay from Sparta won the bounce-off in the trampoline FIG category on Sunday, bringing the weekend to a close. Murray also won the tarrif award and form award at FIG level. Kim also won the same accolades in DMT, sharing the latter with Riley Summers and Hannah Brown.
Murray was joined by club mate Sarah Gallacher who was crowned women’s trampoline champion. This was the third title for the Sparta gymnast, who last year won a gold medal as part of the GB junior women’s team at the European Championships.
Completing the winner’s lineup was Leo Davidson from Flyers who became the men’s DMT champion for the first time. Although a new name on the trophy, he’s a well-kent face at these championships, having first competed when he was eight years old. His years have been spent in trampoline and Leo only started DMT training in February. He did return to take part in Sunday’s trampoline programme, but only as part of the judges’ panel.
Almost 300 gymnasts showcased their individual skills and joint routines under the bright lights of Bell’s Sports Centre, in Perth. This was the first time the Scottish championships included synchronised trampoline. It was also the first time an award was presented in the disability category.
Congratulations to the champions and award winners, their coaches and clubs. You can see who won below. The full results are in the results section.
