Dunhurst gymnast at national final

Posted on 08th June 2017

Daniel Rose, who is in Group 3 at Dunhurst, and his gymnastics partner Esme Smith have finished in fifth place in the National Development Plan (NDP) national acrobatic finals in Stoke-on-Trent.

Daniel and Esme had already come through the southern regional preliminaries in Southampton in March to earn their place at the national finals in Stoke-on-Trent, where they produced an impressive performance.

This year was Daniel and Esme's first year competing together in the national programme, and the next cycle will start again in October and finish with the national finals in May 2018.

Daniel trains at the Portsmouth Gymnastics Centre and the club are preparing to take a pair and a trio to the British Championships in Liverpool in July.
