AS Britain goes gymnastics-crazy after Team GB’s successful Olympic Games, the next generation of gymnasts have been tumbling their way to medals at youth level.

Dominic Hart and Chloe Macklin, Year 7 pupils from Morecambe Community High School, represented the school and the region at the National Schools Gymnastics Championships in Stoke-on-Trent.

The pair competed in the Under 13 Mixed section and beat many other gymnasts from around the country to finish in a fantastic third place.

Chloe also qualified for the finals in the Under 13 tumbling section, beating 14 other gymnasts to finish in a brilliant eighth 
place.
