Benji Gets Bronze

Posted on

Huntingdon gymnast, Benji Eyre 16, travelled to Manchester as part of the junior Welsh team competing at the UK School games this weekend. Eyre worked well across the 6 Olympic apparatus, finishing 10th all around and qualifying for Vault and High Bar finals against some of the best juniors from the Home Nations.  In day two Benji put out two competent vaults to come a credible 5th, but then sealed the weekends result with a great performance on the high bar to take a bronze medal with a score of 12.8
Huntingdon head boys coach, Ben Howells commented: "This was a good result for Benji at the start of a busy season and will serve as good preparation for the Northern European Championships in Ireland in a few weeks time."
