The 2016 English Championships took place over the weekend, 18th-20th March 2016.

With WAG Espoir, junior & senior levels along with MAG gymnasts from every age competing, the weekend was jam packed.

Whilst there was a few missing names, such as Ellie Downie, Catherine Lyons, Kelly Simm and Rebecca Tunney, the former three being injured whilst the latter was competing in Stuttgart.

The roster was still packed and the story of the Senior WAG competition was Claudia Fragapane who took the AA title with a 57.609, complete with a hit new bar routine and her new massively upgraded BB routine that helped earn her the bronze medal last weekend at the Glasgow World Cup. She faltered slightly this weekend, falling in her standing Arabian. However, Claudia still managed to take home the AA title along with gold medals on UB,BB and FX, being stopped on her medal sweep by Katie Meadow who performed two vaults, averaging a 13.075 to take the VT title.

Fellow 2015 World Championships bronze medalist, Amy Tinkler was over a point behind Claudia in the AA and clinched the silver medal with a 56.550. The youngster from South Durham had an error free competition, scoring highest on VT with a 15.050 for a clean DTY. Amy also took home silver medals on BB and FX and a bronze medal on UB.

New senior, Abigail Solari took home the bronze medal in the AA with a score of 51.800. Solari also finished 4th on UB, speciality of her Academy teammate, Ruby Harrold, 8th on BB and 5th on FX. Whilst it is a great result for this up and coming gymnast, it is a low AA score and it must be noted that had the gymnasts afore mentioned been competing that are injured or competing elsewhere or had there been other girls competing that were of a higher standard, Solari’s placing would have dropped significantly.

Amongst the junior women, Alice Kinsella of Park Wreckin, who recently competed at L’International Gymnix took the AA title with a 54.650. Alice also took the FX and BB titles with a 13.750 on both of those events. On UB, she took the silver behind City of Birmingham’s Taeja James, who also competed at L’International Gymnix earlier this month and who took the silver in the AA with a 53.700, along with her UB gold she also took a VT gold and a BB silver. Lucy Stanhope took the bronze medal in the AA with a 51.500 and also placed 4th on VT, UB and BB.

The other two young British juniors who competed at L’International Gymnix in February and who are ones to watch for the future are Ellesse Oates who placed 7th AA, after having a rough day, placing 8th on FX, 5th on UB, but redeeming herself on VT, where she placed 2nd and Maisie Methuen who competed as a guest and so therefore was not included in the final standings as she is a Welsh gymnast. She posted an AA score of 53.900, which would have placed her 2nd AA.

Whilst the junior and senior ranks are the most notable competitions of the weekend, the Espoir results should also be

taken not of as the gymnasts performing at this level are the elites of the future.
