Lucy helps team to northern gymnastics success

A 13-year-old Todmorden gymnast was among successful the team at a top Northern competition.

Lucy Williams performed a tsukahara on vault to help her team from Diamonds Gymnastics Club to take a gold medal at the Goole Micro Team Gym Open Competition.

She and her other three team members are National Level 2 gymnasts.

All four girls had worked extremely hard on new moves since the British Team Gym Finals a month earlier.

Each routine was performed to a high standard, many moves being performed for the first time.

The score of 34 points secured the gold medal position which was two clear points ahead of the team in the silver medal position.

Lucy’s coach was very proud of the girls and will be looking for them to repeat this success in other competitions later on in the year.
