Eight finalists in this year’s Y8 Vaulting Final at Bolton School wowed the judges with a series of outstanding vaults. Each boy performed a through vault, a long fly vault, a rotational vault of their choice and a double box vault comprising a through vault as well as a choice of their own. The competition took place in the boys’ gym in front of the whole year group as well as the boys’ Form Teachers and PE staff.

Mr Matthew Johnson, Head of PE at Bolton School Boys’ Division, said: “It was a highly competitive final – one of the best in years - with boys performing to a very high standard. They have shown exceptional poise, balance and bravery and all this in front of a large audience. It was edge of your seat viewing and many staff who watched were amazed at the quality.”

After some deliberation, the Gold medal was presented by Deputy Headmaster Mrs Helen Brandon to Kevin Longthorne, with George Neill taking silver and Joe Carolan bronze position. The other competitors, who were already winners having won through to the final in earlier rounds, all received certificates and were Haseeb Ahsan, Tom Griffiths, Kian McDonald, Leo Allen and Kiran Sastry.
