RubyLast weekend Ruby Stacey became the Espoir (12/13 age group) English Gymnastics Champion. She also won the gold medal on bars, silver on floor and bronze on beam. The event took place at Redbridge Sports Centre in Ilford.

Ruby is 12 year old incredibly talented gymnast who trains 21 hours a week. Ruby works extremely hard and makes the most of every single second she is in the gym training. Her passion and commitment alongside her non stop work ethic makes this national title a very well deserved win.
She shone on the day with her beautiful lines, high difficulty routines and confident, happy personality. It was most certainly her day to shine.
As well as the overall English Champion Title Ruby also placed 1st on bars with an action packed high difficulty routine. She was only one in her age group to include a catch a ‘release and catch’ element in her routine- a sky high Jeager to be exact. She swings the bars like a monkey and truly looks at home here. Scoring 11.8

On floor she claimed the silver medal with lots of stunning leaps and beautifully danced routine. She nailed her tumbles to gain a massive 12.6 score.

Onto vault where she placed 5th with two well performed high and powerful somersault vaults. Average score of 12.450

Ruby’s last piece of the competition was beam. As a team we have been working extremely hard to increase Ruby’s confidence here and it really paid off. She looked stylish and confident throughout- so much so she secured the bronze medal. A massive score of 12.55

An incredible result for not only Ruby but the entire club.
Our first ever National Title Winner.
