Results and Scores British Teams and Trialists



Congratulations to The Academy of Gymnastics, British Team Champions 2016. City of Liverpool finished in second place, and South Durham third.

There were many GB squad members in action today, in the earlier round Seniors Georgia Mae Fenton and Tyesha Mattis for East London, and Gabby Jupp for Sapphire, although no Teal Grindle. Junior squad members Oriel Powell (still an Espoir), Megan Parker, and Taeja  James of City of Birmingham. Also competing for Sapphire was British development squad member Ondine Achampong the current Level 2 British champion who as just entered the Espoir age group, and as such is old enough to compete at the championships.

There were so many routines, far to many to comment on, so here are  few videos and a few descriptions from the notes I made while trying to watch four screens at once!

From the morning session, Tyesha began well on beam, a few wobbles, but all her difficulty for 14.00

On floor Tyesha was competing for the first time since 2014, opening with a full in, she landed badly, and that was the end of her routine and her competition. I can’t imagine how frustrating this was for her, Tyesha is such a talented gymnast, and I very much hope she can recover well, then enjoy a long injury free career to fulfil her potential.

Georgia Mae Fenton in her senior debut was beautiful as ever on floor. She opened with a new two and a half twist, then a double tuck, a little short, and finished with a straight front double twist. No bars today which is her strongest piece, but the 16th highest score on beam.

Also doing well for East London is new Espoir Samanta Katkevica who finished 5th in the combined 2015 level 2 national championships. Samanta did particularly well on vault where she was the equal third highest scorer despite not being senior until 2020.

`The young City of Birmingham team entered their first championships, this is a team that could well take the title in future years, with three national junior squad members competing today, and many talented up and coming gymnasts. They had a mixed day, but with Taeja 4th on vault, Megan 5th on bars, Taeja 7th on beam, and Megan 3rd on floor, you can see the potential here.

Gabby Jupp returned for Sapphire after her warm up at the Welsh Championships a few weeks ago. She placed 7th on beam with a strong routine, just the watered down dismount as she continues her recovery. Gabby placed 8th on floor with a beautiful routine really well presented, the tumbling is coming back, and she just deserves so much credit for fighting back yet again after such devastating injury. In her best result of the day, Gabby then did brilliantly to finish behind Becky Downie and Becky Tunney with the 3rd Highest bars score.

Ondine who also isn’t a senior until 2020 placed 4th on beam behind Becky, Amy and Tyesha, remember the name of this young gymnast, we’ll likely be hearing a lot of her over the next few years.

In the second round, although without British senior squad member Georgina Hockenhull, Park Wrekin fielded two of the British Junior squad, fresh from their efforts at the International Gymnix, Alice Kinsella and Ellesse Oates. Both girls upped their vault scores from Gymnix, then Alice unfortunately came off the bar on her Pak, a repeat of her Gymnix routine. Alice absolutely has this skill, she warmed it up without issue, and I’m sure we’ll see her catch it without issue at the English and British. Ellesse did very well on beam upping her score by 0.4 to take 5th place, and also scored higher on floor, so some very good work for her. Alice placed 6th on beam, and floor, and will be one of the strong contenders for the English and British junior titles over the next few weeks.

Amy Tinkler led the South Durham team, she competed a her DTY for 14.90 and the highest vault score. On bars she fell on the new Tkatchev from the Maloney, but she did seem to have a lot more swing on it today, as well as through the rest of the routine, so she is building nicely here.
On beam Amy took out the standing full, she did warm it up, and I think fell once, and landed the other, so obviously decided to leave it out just for today. The three layouts were absolutely solid though. The tumbles on floor were the same as the American Cup, no issues at all on the double tuck today though, easily round and landed. Highest floor score for Amy today too.

South Durham have some lovely young gymnasts, not everything came off for all of them today, but they are looking good for the future, and the bronze medal for the team reflected this. Leah Greenland on beam particularly stood out, another very young gymnast not senior till 2020, and 7th highest score of the day. Leah finished 4th in the British Level two combined championships 2015, and is a member of the British development squad, so one to watch.

Liverpool had two British squad members, Junior Lucy Stanhope, and Senior Becky Tunney. They of course also have Senior Charlie Fellows, but she wasn’t competing today. Lucy had a mixed day, she vaulted a full twisting Yurchenko, for the 6th highest score, then had a bit of a form issue on her Jaeger on bars, and a late turn on the giant full but everything else was good, and she finished with an excellent dismount for eighth place.

On beam Lucy had a wobble on her full twisting flick, then she had a great save after the flick layout, where I think she usually does another layout, but seemed to catch her foot, and did well to made the flick and keep it on. The rest was solid, and with a little more confidence will be a strong routine for her as she has a lot of good work on this piece.

Becky Tunney is another gymnast on her way back, we saw her at the Osijek grand Prix last year on beam and floor, today she competed four pieces. Full twisting Yurchenko vault, but she did warm up a double. Becky competed her big difficulty on bars, including the  Church to Bhardwaj  combination for the second highest score of the day.  Great to see her back on this piece as she is such a strong bar worker.  Yes she may have run out of steam just at the end, but this is a big routine, and for the first time out, a great effort for 14.40 and the second highest score of the day.

On beam Becky had a fall on her side somi, but made the pike front, the change to change quarter, and the flick tuck. She finished with a change half then double pike dismount. On floor she tumbled whip double Arabian, one and a half to double twist, double tuck, and double pike.

Finally, The Academy fielded three GB senior squad members to take the title. Ruby Harrold vaulted a full twisting Yurchenko today for 13.850, then went for her unique and difficult bar routine, which went well until just at the end where she does a handstand hop change into her double front dismount. She didn’t make the handstand hop, so had to stop and then try it again. The score of 14.150 even with big break is reflective of the quality of a world bar finalist routine.

On beam, opening with the same as she did at world championships, change to split jump, then change half. She then went for a new Illusion turn instead of the front somi (one D for another), where she did have quite a wobble, but managed to keep it on. She also went for a new sissone free cartwheel connection, she didn’t make it today, but an upgrade. Flick layout is still there, as is the change to ring, and today a gainer straight back instead of the double tuck she was using, same value skills, but a change for this year.

No floor for Ruby today, she has a new routine which we will have to wait a little longer to see. Her Academy teammates did well on floor though with Phoebe Turner placing second on the day with 13.90 for two and a half to straight front, triple twist, double twisting straight front, and double pike.

Junior Zoe Simmons landed her big double front, Abi Solari tumbled a full in, one and a half to straight front, two and a half, and double tuck. Epsoir AA silver medalist Amelia Knight had a fall on her front from the one and a half, but did well other than that, and April Maslen although not a high in difficulty really performed her well choreographed routine. The Academy routines are available  here, some great work from this strong team




Becky Downie competed as an individual which is why her scores don’t appear on the lists, this is also why some of the placements I have given are one lower that on the lists as Becky was the actual highest scorer on bars and beam.

Before I get onto bars and beam, excitingly Becky warmed up vault too. No competition, but she did a big straight Yurchenko, a big full twisting Yurchenko, then another big straight Yurchenko. The full twist was very high, very straight, and had plenty of time left for more. Becky always had a great DTY, and it looks like she’s working on bringing it back for this year. With her bars and beam added to that, she’s looking very good.

On beam first, the same splits mount, the front somi to open. Good free cartwheel layout, same excellent extension as we’re used to seeing from her. A new leap series, change to change half, it seems Becky has taken out the C value spin which she didn’t receive credit for at World’s, and replaced it with the D value leap. She changed the series in the middle from spin-free walkover-sissone, to sissone-spin-free walkover, having to pause between the spin and the free walkover, Becky then added a sissone for the 0.1 connection value. Side somi, change to ring which was brought sharply under control at the end, then finishing with a double pike. Clean work as ever from Becky, and should she add the W jump to the front which she does when it’s absolutely solid, she seems to be going for a big 6.3 D score here. 14.650  (6.2 D) today, another big beamer for the GB seniors.

On bars it’s going to be interesting where Becky goes with her routine this year. Today she seemed to go for her 2015 routine, although she missed the Shang from the Chow to high bar, and just moved on to the toe full to the Downie, to the Pak. 15.10 for not the whole planned routine having to count a C instead of the usual F value Shang, and losing the 0.2 in connection value, so a 6.4 D as opposed to 6.9.  Still a very big score, and possibility of a huge one.  I am really hoping to see Becky make the Rio team and hit her biggest routines out there. She is a genuine medal contender on this piece.
