Trampolining stars qualify for British Colleges Sport National Championships

Posted on

Congratulations to Year 1 students Becca Shaw and Hannah Bradshaw on their success in the British Colleges Sport East Regional Trampolining Tournament held at the CRC. Both girls competed in the Elite Girls group, Becca came 6th and has qualified for a place at the National Championships in Bath in March. Hannah, who is studying PE, Psychology, English Language and Applied Science, came 7th and is first reserve.

Becca, who is studying PE (specialising in trampolining), Psychology, Geography and Applied Science, and is the daughter of Teresa Shaw, Applied Science/Biology Technician at Long Road, explains:

“I took up trampolining four years ago when I joined the after school club at my previous school, Comberton Village College and started competing almost immediately regionally. The beginning of this year I qualified to compete on the National circuit  and was lucky enough to qualify for the British Championships in Birmingham, July 2012. Hannah (who also went to Comberton) and I both train at the Cambourne Comets Trampoline Club based at Cambourne Fitness and Sports Centre, Cambourne.  The club has five national competitors, so the standard is really high.”
