Suki enjoyed plenty of home success in the Southern Region competition.

The Gosport aerobic gymnastics club put on a fine show at Brune Park Community School.

It was a high-quality event, catering for all three levels (RAC, NAC and FIG).

Suki had 16 gymnasts competing throughout the day.

Overall, they picked up three gold medals, one silver and four bronze.

Caitlin Downing lifted the Highest RAC Score Trophy – a big achievement given she was competing against gymnasts who are up to seven years older than her.

She’s now moved up to NAC level.

Molly Feltham competed for the first time and finished joint fourth in the RAC category.

Shannon Russell performed a new routine and achieved a bronze medal.

Mackenzie Towse finished in first place and thanks to her fabulous score has also now moved up into the NAC level.

Eleanor Meachen competed a new routine and finished third.

Jade Newnham added a gold to the tally and has moved up to NAC as her new routine proved a hit.

Jessie Cerdan finished in second place.

In the NAC level, Jasmine Welsh and Taylor Townley picked up bronze medals.

At foundation level, Josie Vassie finished fourth.

Hannah Emmett competed for the first time in FIG with a new routine and sealed fourth place.

The Dedication to Aerobic Gymnastics Shield in the south was awarded to Suki coach Natalie Porter.

Meanwhile, those who give up their time unpaid to help Suki were also recognised with the volunteer-of-the-year award for the south.

Suki are now working towards the Welsh Open Club Championships in Cardiff on May 1-3.

The Gosport club need a sponsor or financial support to help their gymnasts continue to shine in competitions around the country.

Team members will be representing the south in Liverpool at the British Championships.
