A TOTAL of 21 gymnasts from Zippy’s Gymnastics Academy in Thornliebank competed in the national grades and compulsory competitions in Perth, achieving much success.

The gymnasts ranged from age eight to 14, all part of the artistic squad and trained under coach Jim Thomson.

Taylor Richardson (7) took gold against a number of elite gymnasts to be named under eight Scottish champions, and silver in range and conditioning.

Crystelle Lake won bronze overall in the grade 13 competition for age group nine — she also was placed first on vault and second on floor.
