Finlay Hazelton was this year’s winner of the Y8 gymnastics vaulting competition, held in the Boys’ Division of Bolton School. Finlay won through a highly competitive final to make it a double for the Hazelton brothers, his younger sibling Toby having won the Y7 competition earlier in the week. 

Six finalists took part in the vaulting final, which was relayed to Forms in their classrooms through the wonder of Zoom. Having worked on their routines in PE lessons, the boys performed four disciplines: through vault, long fly, rotational vault and double box vault. Jasper Seddon came in second place and Adam Bakker in third. The other contestants, who all performed with great skill, confidence and dexterity were Oliver Scales, Freddie Wardle and Aaron Patel. 

Considering both finals, Head of PE Mr Johnson reflected: ‘Congratulations go to the winners of both the Y7 and the Y8 Gymnastics Finals. Both Hazelton boys showed what a talented pair they are with a range of superb skills on show. Well done.’
