Two teams from Stamford Junior School entered the IAPS National Gymnastics Championships in Dorset, in the Under 10 and Under 11 categories. All of the gymnasts performed a set floor routine, a set vault and a group routine on the first day, followed by a voluntary vault and voluntary floor on the second day of the competition. Both of our teams collected 5th place medals for their group routines and the Under 10 team were placed fourth in the team event. Of the individual performances, Lottie Smith, aged 8, scored the highest in the Under 10 floor section, so was crowned the IAPS National Floor Champion 2009. Well done to all of our gymnasts for the skills and determination with which they performed.
