  • Toby had a reasonably good competition, finishing 6th overall, with 1st place on p bars and 2nd place on high bar, though 2 falls on pommels cost him a higher overall position
  • Hamish (who still has another 3  years at this age level) had a very good competition finishing 10th overall with 3rd place on p bars.
  • Sam injured his ankle/calf muscles on vault so didn't do floor.
  • Matthew was ill so didn't make it at all
