Thursday 5th April 2018

TWO MAIDSTONE gymnasts have secured gold medals at the Commonwealth Games in Australia.
James Hall and Courtney Tulloch (pictured) are part of a five-strong team who have won the men's team event to give England their first gold medal of the games.
The pair train at Pegasus Gym Club in Tovil, and there was delight there this morning.
Debbie Hounsell, who works on reception at the club, said: "It's absolutely fantastic. 
"We are delighted for them, they work so hard."
Club chairman and founder Peter Griffin passed away last month, and Debbie added: "He would have been so proud of the boys."
The pair were joined by Max Whitlock, Nile Wilson and Dominick Cunningham to win the medal.
