Gymnasts are celebrating winning three medals at the British Championships.

Girls from the Oxford School of Gymnastics, which is based at Thame’s Lord Williams’s School, picked up two silvers and a bronze in acrobatic gymnastics.

It was a welcome reward for the competitors after a hard 18 months’ preparation.

Head coaches Carrie Day and Emma Parr said: “It’s a fantastic achievement to win a medal at the British Championships and it’s something they will always remember.

“We are really proud of them and very excited about the future.”

Becky Evans, Sophie Everett and Siobhan Mahdoo took silver in the senior women’s group and Gabby Jackson, Cossi Jackson and Nina Ferber were second in the 13 to 19-year-old women’s group.

Rebecca Brookes and Sophie Newell got bronze in the 12 to 18-year-old women’s pairs.
