On 27 May, three trampolinists from the Edenvale based Gym Masters Gymnasts and Masters Gymnasts Clubs, Dylan Humphries, Ethan Strydom and Ryan Last, qualified to compete in the annual Top Ten Trampoline event.
Participation for this event is by invitation only, based on 2016 results. All boys qualified to take part in the Juniors Male category.
Whilst Dylan could not partake due to an injury, Ryan achieved 4th place and Ethan won gold in the Junior Trampoline event. These are impressive results considering the high calibre of gymnasts from across South Africa who took part in the event.
Taking place in conjunction with this event was the first trial for the SA Team to compete in the World Age Group Competition later in the year. Ethan Strydom took part in the trial for the Double-Mini Trampoline event, and will also be taking part in the second trial on 5 August in Port Elizabeth.
The gymnasts practice at the Highway Gardens Community Centre and are coached by the Demianenko family and assisted by Michelle Sharples and Kimona Moodley.
