Suki are looking ahead to a great 2015.

The Gosport-based aerobic gymnastics outfit have made great progress

They have an exceptional group of talented youngsters who are blazing a trail for the club.

Sian Bennett’s superb performances have propelled her into the Great Britain squad, and a number of other talented gymnasts are following in her footsteps.

Victoria Barrell has moved into the FIG 15-17-year individual category, stepping up to the international stage from national level.

Suki head coach Natalie Porter said: ‘Victoria has really found her footing and will be aiming to build on a very positive result in the British Championships when she set a personal best of 17.7 and got very close to a medal.’

In addition, Annis Buick was selected into the FIG category in the 10-11-year category for 2014, while Hannah Emmett has earned the same reward for 2015.

Emmett will be aiming to follow in the footsteps of Bennett into the Great Britain squad.

Taylor Townley is competing in the national category for her age group, 15 to 17-years, and has made forward strides.

She improved by two marks to put her on the brink of FIG selection.

Meanwhile, Tyesha Kirtons represents the new group of gymnasts who are benefiting from the top coaching offered at the club.

Kirtons started out in 2014 with no previous experience at the age of 10.

Porter added: ‘She listened, progressed, worked, and has managed not only to compete for Suki but achieve medals in the competition.

‘She has moved from regional to national level for 2015.’
