8:00am Saturday 16th February 2013 in Sport
LUCY Costello has become the latest member of Warrington Gymnastics Club to achieve national acclaim.
The 14-year-old, who finished third in December’s British tournament, has been selected for the Great Britain tumbling team, and will join them for training next month.
She is dedicated to her craft, spending five days per week at Warrington’s Evans House gym.
“Lucy’s selection is a testament to the hard work and commitment she has shown for the sport and is a well-deserved achievement,” said coach Shane Robinson.
Some of the club’s younger competitors this week took part in the Cheshire and Merseyside regional grades competition.
Millie Adamson and Elinor Dohery tackled their first four-piece competition, both girls passing at regional grade 14 with a clear 10 marks each.
In grade 12, Charlie Hall, Madison Bailey-Moyes and Beckie Knowles passed with distinction.
Hall was placed fourth overall, while Bailey-Moyes had the highest score on beam.
Paige Cridland, Mollie Benson and Saskia Fiswick succeeded with distinction at grade 11.
Cridland’s score of 45.7 put her fourth place overall.
Warrington Gymnastics Club hope this success continues later this month when Izzy Hall, Lucy Swann, Sophie Collier and Jess Adamson compete in the North West Compulsory and National Grades in Wigan.
Meanwhile Wire Gymnastics Club were also celebrating success in Liverpool.
They came away with Beth Giles as grade 13 champion and Olivia Wright as grade 12 champion, while Holly Doherty was third in grade 12.
Savannah Taylor and Kayleigh Perrin gained selection for the Cheshire and Merseyside teams to compete at regional finals later this month.
