Olivia jumps ahead to win DMT British Championship

Fantastic gymnastics! Olivia-May Street, year 11 student at the Coleshill School, has a spring in her step today following her victory at the 2017 Trampoline, Tumbling & DMT British Championships at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on 23rd and 24th September.

Competing in the Elite Women 15/16 DMT, Olivia battled through against some impressive performances to retain the British Championship.  This is Olivia’s first year competing in a new age group of which she is the youngest competitor, and up against the current British champion of that group.  She is now double British champion and current English champion.

Olivia has also been chosen for the Great Britain DMT squad in the World championships in Sofia Bulgaria in November 2017.

Ian Smith-Childs, headteacher, said:

We are so proud of Olivia.  She has worked so hard to achieve this goal and is a model student and role model to other students; she always keeps up with her school work and strives to do her best in all that she does.  What an amazing achievement. We look forward to following her progress and wish her every success in the World Championships in November.”
