Academy Students go for Gold

Two Elizabethan Academy students, Matthew Evans and Billy Stevenson, recently took Gold at the East Midlands Gymnastics for All in Leicester.

They both competed in 4 disciplines in their age category - Floor, Parallel Bars, High Bars and Vault and both gained the highest score in the competition.

The boys became members of Retford Gymnastics Club only 5 years ago and devote 10 hours a week to training.  Their commitment to the sport certainly has paid off as this is not their first gold medal win.

Jason White, Acting Principal, said how proud he was of Matthew and Billy’s success.  “Both boys have shown such dedication.  They apply this to their learning too and they are real assets to the academy.”  Well done!
