Huntingdon Gymnastics Club talents collected medals at international and regional levels last weekend.

Jake Jarman was a member of the Great Britain squad which won a four-way match against Germany, Switzerland and France in Belfast.

The 15 year-old added an individual silver medal on the vault to his overall gold and coach, Ben Howells, said: “Jake’s composure to maintain steady and focused training to perform at this level is a credit to him.”

There was also plenty of success for members of the club’s junior elite boys squad in a regional voluntary competition in Ipswich.

Sol Scott starred in the Under 10 section, winning seven medals – three silver and four bronze - in his first event at this level.
