Birmingham NIA National Finals - 5th-6th July 2008
Slideshow from Birmingham
Warm-ups on Saturday saw Kensie, Hannah & Scott in particular in excellent form and drawing admiring comments; sadly this was where Kensie & Gemma's competition would end as neither were able to compete and so were withdrawn.
Set rounds saw Stephen (tied in 5th), Scott (tied in 5th), Natasha (7th) & Hannah (1st) all in contention for finals places with Chrissie (15th) and Anthony (11th) having some work to do. The voluntary rounds saw major turnarounds though, as Stephen stranded himself near the side-pads after 9 moves and dropped out of contention, Scott similarly only performing 9 moves nevertheless did so with consummate style to keep on track, 'Tash although completing her Vol did so without her usual style and fell down the order, Chrissie let nerves get the better of her whilst Anthony kept his under control with a consistent performance pulling him into contention.
Finals day, then, saw only Scott, Hannah & Anthony competing but what a day for them. Anthony maintained his cool and pulled up from 7th to 5th place overall, Hannah continued her domination with new personal best scores to win her group whilst Scott maintained 4th place despite a stunning end of routine topple after his outbounce.
