No holds barred for Gabby

A pupil from a Wolverhampton school has been hitting the heights in a national gymnastics event.

Gabriella Williams, a Y8 pupil at Tettenhall College, competed in the prestigious British Championships in Liverpool in March. She placed a respectable 13th out of the top 44 gymnasts in Great Britain, despite having two falls. Gabby also qualified for the Bars apparatus final, despite a fall in her routine – this was testament to her skill as only the top eight gymnasts qualify for the final.

Gabby went on to win the final of the Bars competition, meaning she officially became number one in Great Britain on the uneven bars. She was also selected to represent Wales in the Home Nations competition in April.

Tettenhall College’s director of sport James Bullock says, “Everyone at Tettenhall College is so proud of Gabby and will be cheering for her at the Home Nations!”
