I had to do a run through of my routines in the gym 10am -11.30am with Mike today, then Dad, Mum and I drove up to Stoke on Trent. We were trying to find out how my club mate Lannah did in her competition today. She was brilliant. The South West team got 🥇.
We stayed in a hotel and chilled out watching Britain’s Got Talent and Eurovision. 😂

Compulsory Level 2 National Finals Competition Day!
It was an early start! We had breakfast at 6.30am, and the I got ready.
We drove to Fenton Manor Sports Complex. I felt excited.
We met Kayleigh and Kelly and my other South West friend Madi.
After the registration and our general warm up and apparatus warm up it was competition march on time, and competition time.
Beam was first.
I had one little wobble (😂 !) but I kept going, the rest was good.
Warning – if you watch this video that Dad took, I fell on my triple flics 😔 ( I managed to get them right once in the warm up. 🤪)
I felt good. I winked when I was in one of my poses! 😂 😂 😂
I was happy with range, but my back roll blind could have been better, if I’m honest.
I was really proud of my vault. My second vault, the handspring one was the best I’ve done I think. I had good consistency for both my vaults.
I was proud of my bars but I could have got my first upstart handstand better, and then 1 mark wouldn’t have been taken off 😉
Here are my results which are put online on Gymdata so people can read the results while we are competing.

To pass you need to get 55 marks. YAY! I PASSED!!!!! I know I still have work to do to improve and that things weren’t perfect today, but I PASSED and that’s all I really needed to do! I can move forwards to Compulsory Level 1 and do really big girl gymnastics, as Kelly says. I am so pleased. I think Kelly is very pleased too. Thank you so much Kelly for coaching me and getting me ready for this comp. 🎉
Out of 43 gymnasts competing in this national championships I came 26th All Around. ☺
My friend Kayleigh from Falcons did really really well and passed too. I am so happy that we could go round together. My friend Madi was also brilliant and passed.

A huge well done to these 2 who have just passed their compulsory level 2 with flying colours. After a long time out last year we could not be more proud of you both and your commitment and determination to keep pushing forwards 🌟🎉😀 #compulsory2 #nationalfinals #passed #onwardsandupwards #ontothenextone#proud
I bought a new leotard from Quatro while I was there. Now I need to get my nails done, like I was promised. 😂
While I was there we met the awesome Max Whitlock MBE and Amy Tinkler. Amy signed my certificate, and Max signed my number! 😍
It’s a long drive home to Devon, 4 hours so I’m writing my blog in the car. 😂 Mum will add my videos for me.
Tomorrow I start my Year 6 SATS week arhhhh!!! I hope I’m not too tired. 😴
BYE BYE for now,
It’s been a great day!
