Suki talent Maya Trickett was top scoring RAC gymnast in the Southern Region Championships

It was the highlight of the RAC (Recreational Aerobic Code) national development category competition.

Her highest score in 2018 was 14.95 but she obliterated that as she won the silver medal in the open competition and the gold in the closed (southern region clubs) competition.

All the dedication she has shown working with the coaches at the Gosport club saw her flying so high.

Head coach Natalie Porter said: ‘Maya finished with a whopping score of 17.00 which smashed her 2018 best but not only this, Maya was also awarded the cup for the highest RAC Score this was out of 89 other routines.

‘She has been working extremely hard over the past few months to ensure her routine was the best she could do it and didn’t it pay off!’
