Tulloch wins English title for Pegasus

Wednesday 26th March 2014

MEMBERS of the men’s artistic squad competed at the English Championships in Wigan.

James Hall and Courtney Tulloch competed in the seniors event with members of the London 2012 Olympic bronze medallists and produced some great results. 

Tulloch took the English title for rings - half a mark in front of 2nd place. Competing with two new vaults, both including a double somersault, Courtney also took the bronze medal for this apparatus.

James finished in 8th place having fallen twice, losing an overall bronze medal, but proved that he is a viable contender to represent Great Britain as a six-piece artistic gymnast. James also finished in 4th place on pommels just behind Olympians Max Whitlock and Louis Smith.

The club, represented across two age groups, had a fantastic weekend. Competing in the youngest age group Isaac Frimston, Sam Mostowfi and Sam Ghinn all made remarkable progress within the competition arena. Competing with new routines and tricky combinations the boys competed well.

Sam Mostowfi finished in 5th place in the boys category. Swinging a much improved rings routine to finish in 3rd place and a 4th-place finish on high bar, Sam was very happy. Sam Ghinn finished in 10th place and just outside the apparatus medals for h-bar. Isaac Frimston had a couple of falls and finished in 22nd place, and just outside the apparatus medals on both high bar and rings.
