Manx Perform Well at British Championships

Alex Hedges finished 14th at the recent Men's Artistic Gymnastics British Championships in London.

The Commonwealth Games athlete recorded a big tally of 76.15 with his best performance coming in the vault where he was ranked sixth.

Joe Smith and Makunda Measuria also competed in the senior bracket with Measuria attaining 15th place overall. Smith competed in just four disciplines - floor, vault, rings and parallel bars.

A warm-up accident eventually stopped Adam Hedges competing. He competed in the vault before going to hospital. An X-ray revealed a fractured metacarpal in his hand.

In the Under-12 Championship, 10 year old Tony Duchars competed in a record field of 70. Despite being one of the youngest taking part, he produced a solid performance scoring 63.35 to be placed 43rd overall.
