FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
|Josh & Susanna with medals|
Susanna Badley was first of the three to compete in one of the first groups of the day. With 48 Under-15 Girls National C competitors it was a long wait until the end result was known but from the beginning she didn't relinquish her lead. With a 0.5 advantage after the set round she pulled away further after the voluntary, now 1.3 clear and yet more in the final round ending 2.2 clear of the second placed girl despite her having a 1 point tariff advantage. As well as the win she also gained an Enhanced Score qualification to FIG B competition and 3 new personal best scores.
Joshua Newman was competing next in the 14-strong boys equivalent group.
having had a niggling injury in the preceding weeks he was planning on
simply repeating his set routine in the voluntary rounds giving him a 2
to 3 point tariff disadvantage against the main contenders.
Despite this he was in 2nd place after the set and posting consistently
higher form marks than others maintained that position to the end.
As with Susanna, Josh's performance was also rewarded with an Enhanced
Score qualification to FIG B and 2 new personal bests.
Chrissie Law was competing in the Under-19 Ladies National C class. After the set round she was lying in 1st place, the voluntary round, however, saw her maintain excellent form scores higher than all her nearest rivals but fall back to 3rd place as opponents with nearly 2 clear marks of tariff advantage overhauled her. In the final round Chrissie maintained her form with nobody getting close but, once again, higher tariffs held sway and she ended in 4th place - in a group of 40 an excellent return capped nicely with a FIG B qualification as well as 2 new personal bests.
