Tommy is Year 7 Gymnastics Champion
Senior Boys Sport

Competing for one of the oldest cups at Bolton School, Tommy Burke ran out as winner of the Year 7 Gymnastics Final. Due to illness and injury, only six finalists competed on the day and all were commended for their routines - a nerve-wracking experience in front of the whole year group. Third place went to Abdulmabeen Ogunnusi and second place to Sasha Milne.

Head of PE Mr Johnson, who judged the competition, said: ‘Given the pressure of performing in front of a live audience, there has been some fine eight-piece sequences today, showcasing a wide range of skills including rolls, handstands, back supports, headstands, bridges and beyond.’

The boys perfected their routines involving travelling movements and balances during curriculum PE lessons. They won through to the final having competed in earlier rounds when all boys in the year group had performed six sequence routines.
