Johnston seals silver success for the Flyers

DRAGONFLYERS’ Anya Johnston rounded off the trampoline season on a high, scooping silver in the NDP National Individual Finals.

 

The member of the Bognor-based trampolining club has racked up just short of 7,000 travel miles this year in her pursuit of glory.

 

Performing in her fifth national final in just eight months, the Ormiston Six Villages Academy pupil put in an excellent performance full of double twisting and double rotation somersaults.

 

She was rewarded with the runners-up spot in the 15/16-year-olds category.

 

It was a fine end to the season for Johnston who has also taken part in the GB schools elite, national league, regional team and  Austria world age final competitions.

 

Also taking part was Izzy Hauxwell, who was participating in her third national final in eight months.

 

After putting in an excellent display, The Regis School pupil finished fifth in 13/14 yrs category (l7).

 

Coach Linda O’Leary said: “Both girls have a string of national finals to their bow over a number of years and are fantastic role models to the club’s younger performers.

 

“This silver is Flyers’ second national finals medal this season, having taken a gold at national league the end of November.

 

“The club boast a large collection of national and international medalists and a huge number of national and international finalists. For a tiny club, that’s a phenomenal achievement.”

 

O’Leary also urged anyone interested in trying out the sport to pop along to the club’s recreational classes, which take place at The Regis School one day every week.

 

Everyone from across the Bognor, Chichester and Portsmouth area is invited to come along and try out the sport.
