12 year old Royston Gymnast Eleanor Simpson topped off a remarkable 2012 by winning the British Tumbling Tournament at Fenton Manor, Stoke on Trent last weekend.
Eleanor has now completed a clean sweep of Gold Medals in all major tumbling competitions held in 2012 which is a remarkable achievement as Great Britain has the best 11-12 year old tumblers in the World!
Eleanor has won Gold at the following events whilst representing Wakefield Gym Club or Great Britain
The Southampton International Open
The Deerness Open
The Wakefield Open
The British Championships
The Sofia World Cup in Bulgaria
The British Tournament
The consistency Eleanor has produced is what has really pleased her coaches. She has not fallen in any competition during 2012 even though her difficulty tariff has increased to levels very few gymnasts in the world of the same age can match.
Competitions have now finished for 2012 so Eleanor will now take a short break before moving up an age group in 2013 where she will be one of the youngest in the 13-14 year old category.
Barnsley people should be very proud of Eleanors achievements.
