Full report to follow, for now, detailed results from today’s senior AA competition. Congratulations go to Ellie Downie of Notts, without question the strongest gymnast in the field, and the strongest AA British gymnast at present.
Joint silver for the two strongest juniors from 2016 Alice Kinsella of Park Wrekin, and Maisie Methuen of Phoenix, great to see these young ladies transition so well into the senior ranks, and a lot to look forward to from them.
I explain the bonus system in place for the competition here:
Ellie received 0.2 for her full out dismount from bars, and 0.1 for completing her toe full close enough to handstand. On beam 0.2 bonus for her two and a half dismount, and on floor 0.1 for her stuck double Arabian, and 0.2 for her double pike dismount.
Alice received 0.2 on beam for her two and a half twist dismount, and 0.2 on floor for her double pike dismount.
Maisie received 0.2 on bars for her full out dismount, 0.2 on beam for her two and a half dismount, and 0.2 on floor for her handspring double twisting straight front dismount.
