Year 7 student, Sonny, started Gymnastics at the age of four, joining Craven Gymnastics Club in Skipton.
From the age of six, he began training with coach, Ed Pickering, at Diamonds Gymnastics Club in Halifax, where he now trains three evenings per week and all-day on Saturday, totalling 18 hours of training every week.
Sonny was selected to join the Yorkshire Gymnastics Squad following the regional competition in Leeds in September and was subsequently part of the Yorkshire Team at the Men’s Artistic Gymnastics National Finals in Telford.
The Team consisted of five boys competing on Vault, Floor, Rings, High Bar, Pommel, Parallel Bars and a Strength Control Routine known as PPP.
All the members of the team performed well against the eight other regions. Sonny finished 16th overall and the Yorkshire team won Gold!
A fantastic result and a great reward for all the hard work by the gymnasts, coaches and the commitment of parents.
