Salto’s Rhythmic Gymnastics squad took part in their first rhythmic Dance and Duo competition in Northampton recently.

There were more than 100 gymnasts competing in duets, trios and quartets as Salto were up against clubs from Nene Valley, Northampton, South Essex, Birmingham and Ribble Valley.

It was a tough competition with some very experienced gymnasts taking part but Kesia Sawdon (12) and Bethanie Turner (12) won a bronze medal for their ball duet.

Tegan Reed (14) and Hollie Chadwick (14) performed an excellent hoop duet and were placed just outside the 
medals.

The rest of the squad, Anya Chadwick (10), Joia Bennett (10) and Kerryn Alderson (11) all put in great performances for ball duet and free dance trio.

It’s been a good 12 months for the squad, who were formed just over a year ago.
