Tori, Serena and Charde make the grade for Brum; GYMNASTICS.

Byline: Lesley Browne

THE West Midlands Women's Regional Gymnastics Grades Championships took place on March 14 and 15 at the North Solihull Sports Centre.

More than 300 gymnasts from 20 clubs across the West Midlands region vied for medal places across four age-group championships competitions.

The City of Birmingham Gymnastics Club had an outstanding weekend, getting off to a great start with Serena Casteneda jointly winning the Grade 13 all-around title, as well as the beam competition, with a score of 12.4 points.

Serena's floor routine performance was filled with artistry and elegance while the beam routine demonstrated accuracy.

Team-mate Tori Markham had a superb competition to take the Grade 12 all-around gold medal. She delighted the audience with an expressive and well-choreographed jazz-themed floor routine combined with powerful tumbling.

Tori also performed confidently on beam, taking second place on the apparatus with a score of 12.15.

Also tasting success was Charde Vaughan-Royes, of the City of Birmingham, who took the silver medal position in the In Age Grade 14 competition, as well as finishing with an individual apparatus first place on bars and beam.

This was followed by a notable performance on vault that showed excellent flight and style throughout.

Congratulations must go to all of the competing gymnasts, coaches and officials involved in such a fantastic day of competition, in what was an extremely well-organised event.
