Ellie Bolton in 7 Strong has been competing and performing in Gymnastics outside of school and been doing rather well. She has sent me some photographs and a short piece of information about what she has done:-

This was my grade 13. Last year I achieved in grade 14 a highly commended 0.60 off distinction but in my grade 13 I achieved a highly commended 0.14 off distinction. I did very well and over all I achieved 54.86 (distinction you need 55).When all the girls finished we all lined up in a row on the floor and a lady would go through all the girls and if they failed there name wouldn’t get called out but luckily in my group no one failed but if you achieve anything you get a certificate and a badge of what your grade is, also an i am BG sticker and BG means British gymnast. But many thanks to the swallows of Heston gymnastics club because without them the event wouldn’t be so amazing.
