Baskervilles’ Rosa Pawlyn Shines at National Competition
An Elite Gymnast from Baskervilles School of Gymnastics competed in National Finals over the weekend, placing 30th in the country in her age group. 10-year-old Rosa Pawlyn headed to Stoke-On-Trent on Sunday 8th May, to compete in the Women’s Artistic National Compulsory Level 3 Competition, representing the South West. The competition is the highest level of gymnastics a child of Rosa’s age can compete at.
Gymnasts competed on vault, bars, beam, floor, and in the range competition – a test of strength and flexibility. Rosa came 30th all-around, with an overall score of 57.750. Rosa had a brilliant result on vault, with her Yurchenko vault awarded 12.950, putting Rosa in 5th place. A strong performance on bars landed Rosa 26th place, with a score of 12.450. Rosa was top scorer in the South West team on both vault and bars.
In an impressive personal best, she also doubled the range score she previously achieved at Compulsory Grades in April, scoring 11.200. This is no doubt thanks in part to Baskervilles’ Strength and Conditioning Coach Joe Rymell, who began working at the club in April. As well as working with our Elite Girls, Joe also works as our new Fitness Suite Manager.
Of Rosa’s impressive result, Elite Girls’ Coach Emma Baskerville enthused, ‘Rosa was an absolute dream, I’m so, so proud. Well done Rosa Pawlyn!’
