Medal Success for Golden Gymnasts

Our gymnasts have travelled to two separate competitions in two weeks and both times brought back medals and trophies from both.

Michaela Cook, Year 8, travelled to Bulgaria at the start of term with her partners to compete for the London Gymnastics team at the Mayor's Cup.

Not only did she help the London team win the overall first place trophy, her Women's Group took Gold in each individual routine. This is an amazing achievement for the young gymnast and a fantastic start to help her international career.

Look out for the new trophy in The Academy's cabinet! 

Seven days later a selection of gymnasts from The Harefield Academy tavelled to Stoke-on-Trent for the Acrobatic Gymnastics School National Finals.

The team was made up of students from Year 7 right through to Year 12, a sign of the depth of our gymnastics squad. Michaela, along with her twin sister, Josie Cook and James Karageorgis, also Year 8, along with Charlie Malin, Year 7 and Ben Findlay, Year 12 made up this year's team.
