Cambridge Cangaroos test their mettle at NDP Trampoline, DMT and Tumbling Finals
Gabriel Strydom-Green sprung onto the podium at the NDP Trampoline, DMT and Tumbling Finals at the Motorpoint Arena.
Five members of the Cambridge Cangaroos had qualified for the final round of the season in Nottingham, all in the NDP6 and Performance levels.
Sydney Kelly and Alasdair Macrae had reached the finals through the regional team rounds, while Strydom-Green, James Able and Zach Goggin had progressed through the Spring Event Series.
After a day of orientation, the Cangaroos were in action on the Sunday.
Strydom-Green held his nerve to deliver two excellent routines to score 88.625, with very high form scores and good difficulty to take second place – a reward for his hard work and determination through the season.
Kelly was in a competitive group, but her form was excellent and after finishing both routines safely, she narrowly missed out on a medal by finishing fourth.
Macrae delivered two safe routines and was also unfortunate to miss out on a podium place, finishing fourth.
Goggin and Able were in the final group of the day, and after delivering some quality routines in a very tough competition, they finished fourth and fifth respectively.
The Cangaroos were pleased with their results and their growing presence on the national stage, with their next event being the English Championships in Birmingham.
