Five SALTO Gymnasts travelled to Southampton to compete in the National Inter-Regional Competition recently.

This competition saw all the second-place medallists in the country from their Regional Preliminary Competitions held in March, in action as part of their respective Regional Teams.

SALTO’s Youth Women’s trio, Ayla, Shaname and Elodie and Youth Mixed Pair, Ben and Chloe formed part of the East Regional Team.

Both are new partnerships this season and for Elodie it was her first competitive season as an acrobatic gymnast.

The trio, who were in a tough group, showcased their best routine yet to finish in seventh place with a top three artistry score.

Ben and Chloe also completed a flawless routine landing them a silver medal spot on the podium, as all five of the gymnasts represented not just SALTO but the East Region.
