We have a National Champion at Walton High! Charlie Roberts has achieved something quite amazing by becoming the UK National U16 Trampoline Champion 2017, which he won at London’s Olympic Park.
He is typically modest about it, but justifiably very proud of what he has done. He did well at the same Championships last year by finishing with a very commendable silver medal, but was not expected to do as well this year, as he had to move up an age group and was at the younger end of that. However, he exceeded all expectations by pulling a performance out of the bag that stunned the judges with a 1¾ turn somersault in a routine that lasted 30 seconds. He describes the moment he knew he had won as “unreal” and is still shocked by his National title.
This is a really great time for Charlie. There are not many people who can claim to be a reigning National Champion at anything. Very well done.
