EVESHAM gymnasts Callum Braathen, Ben Harvey, Harry Ward, Ashton Price, Noah Spencer and Alfie Taylor performed impressively as the Worcestershire Gymnastics Academy squad won 13 medals at the West Midlands men’s artistic Regional Championships at the Gymnastics and Martial Arts Centre (GMAC) in Birmingham.

The club entered 18 gymnasts into the event – the fourth staging of the competition – which features a full six-piece competition on floor, pommel mushroom, rings, vault, parallel bars and high bar.

The standard was very high and the Vale gymnasts and their team-mates rose to the challenge.

The club won six gold medals through Laith Coathup, Jacob Taylor-Ricketts, Lewis Beaver, Ward, Luis Smith and Stan Murray, two silvers from Harvey and Zak Myatt and five bronze medals thanks to Taylor, Ethan Mathias, Price, Bruno Osman-Hopes and Braathen.

James Kirk, Spencer and Cotton Hennessey finished in fourth place, Matti Morris was fifth and Jacob Thomas sixth in his first competition.
