36th Trampoline Friendship Cup
Held at Kladno, just outside Prague in the Czech Republic, this open international competition pulls in highly talented performers from throughout Europe.
Paul Kitchen & Scott Gregory attended with Scott performing in the Junior Boys (aged 15-17) and Senior Men Synchro competitions.
The Junior Boys competition was big enough to warrant 3 flights and saw Scott performing last in the last flight - after the preliminaries he was leading by 2.8 going into the finals. With such a lead he eased back on the difficulty in the final only to discover afterwards that the competition was, unusually, running finals on a zero start basis (this normally only applies to Senior competition) - this resulted in him having to make do with 2nd place by just 0.2 despite having being congratulated by all for having won!
Teaming with ex-clubmate, Matthew Wright, the Synchro saw an even closer finish with Scott & Matt ending in 2nd place by just 0.1.
Detailed results will undoubtedly be posted here in due course.
