TRA-Metz13th – 20th November 2010 - Metz (FRA)
The Trampoline World Championships will be followed by the 20th World Age Group Competitions, also to be held in Metz’s Les Arènes Sports Complex from November 16 - 19, 2010. Boys and girls of Age Groups 11-12, 13-14, 15-16 and 17-18 years will compete in Individual and Synchronised Trampoline, Tumbling and Double Mini-Trampoline.
Zara McLean qualified in 3rd place after runs 1 and 2 in the Senior Women's Tumbling Final. She performed consistently, but following a judge enquiry and a final ruling from the Superior Jury, FIG, it was deemed that there was a repetition of skill. Therefore her original placing, [announced as a Bronze medal], was adjusted based on difficulty and Zara was confirmed as 5th place. Irrespective of the huge disappointment this represents and the circumstances in which the adjustment was made, nonetheless this still represents a significant World Championship result. Our sincere congratulations are extended to Zara, Zoe Styles and Wakefield Gymnastics Club.
Other finalists included Adeva Bryan finished 7th (33.000) and Robyn Osborne 8th (32.400) in the Women's DMT Finals whilst, Bryony Page and Amanda Parker finished 7th in the Synchro Final scoring 43.300. This follows Bryony's 4th place finish in the Trampoline Final.
