Posted on

Huntingdon Gymnastics Club member Jake Jarman (14), attended the Autumn Cup in Seveso, Italy at the weekend for the GB International competition.  Jarman and three other GB Junior Squad members; Pavel Karnenjenko (16), Victor Yeo (13) and Raekwon Baptiste (14) travelled to Italy to compete, accompanied by Junior National Coach Sam Hunter and Huntingdon Gymnastics Club men’s coach, Ben Howells.

The team performed well, and secured the team silver, missing out by only 0.6 to the team from Hungary.  Jake, who attends “The Deepings” school in Peterborough, was competing in in his first international competition, but qualified for two apparatus finals on the first day, and on the second converted this to a Bronze on Rings and Silver on High bar.  Ben Howells, coach said "I am really impressed with Jake's composure and professionalism, he had a great experience and will draw upon this for future events".
