2018 British Champions

On 22-24 June 18, Rhythmic Gymnastics Club Worcester was represented by two Espoirs (u12) groups in the British Championships at the Telford International Centre. Red, made up of Elodie McNelis, Georgia Smith, Eva Yordanov & Mia Harding wowed everybody in the sizeable audience with 4 fantastic routines taking the overall British Champions title and 2 silver medals in the apparatus finals with their free and ball routines. Purple, made up of Jess Bettles, Amber Whitaker, Scarlett Bunn & Lucy Jackman, in only their fourth competition as a group, finished a creditable 8th overall and 6th in the apparatus final with their free routine. Head Coach, Petra Milecova was overjoyed and stated that both groups had performed brilliantly at the top of their game, deserving all the success they both achieved. Next up for both groups are the remaining rounds of the Elite League and the English Championships in Bath in October.

Competition Update 2018

2018 competition season started in March and our first event was individual grades qualification.

Jess whose first Level 3 event this was has done two clean routines. Well done.
