The Dynamo Senior Team were back in action last weekend at the 32nd Rushmoor Rosebowl. The Team led by Dynamo’s 2 senior girls Kelly Simm and Laura Edwards, were joined by Juniors Sophie Barber and Chloe Brebner and Espoir gymnast Amy Layzell, along with coaches Kerri Upton and Emma Beales.

In the Rosebowl’s 32nd year, a massive field of 20 teams entered, including club teams from across Britain, Regional Teams and National Teams. Dynamo held their own and put in a fantastic performance showing their strength as individuals and as a team. In the Club Team section, Dynamo placed 3rd overall with a team score of 188.375. This put the Team in 5th place in the overall standings amongst teams from England, Ireland, South Africa and the Isle of Man.

In the Individual competition, Kelly Simm, a student at Itchen College placed 1st after putting in a strong all-around performance showing her consistency across all four events, with a score of 53.70. This also qualified her through to Sunday’s Individual Apparatus Finals on Bars (13.30), Beam (13.50), and Floor (13.70). Team mate Laura Edwards, a first year student at Southampton Solent University, in her first competition back after suffering injury, showed she is ready to step back into the big time posting the highest Beam score of the day with 13.90, qualifying her through to the final. Laura also qualified into the Bars Final with a score of 12.60. Chloe Brebner, a student at Ferndown Upper School, put in a clean performance to help the team into 3rd place posting an all-around score of 42.50, including a 12.25 for her stunning floor routine. Amy Layzell, a student at King’s School in Winchester, the youngest member of the team, posted an all-around score of 41.40, after competing her double back somersault for the first time. Sophie Barber, a student at Parkston Grammer School, scored a total of 39.65 to round of the teams success.

On day 2, the Individual Apparatus Finals took place. Chloe Brebner stepped into Vault final, competing a Piked Yurchenko and a Tucked Tsukahara to post an average score of 12.575 for 8th place. On Bars, Kelly Simm finished 2nd with 12.80, with Laura Edwards in 7th. Kelly won her second Rosebowl of the weekend after competing a strong Beam routine for 12.80, with Laura in 7th with 11.35. Kelly was the final competitor of the weekend bringing the 32nd Rushmoor Rosebowl to a close in the floor final where she finished 3rd with a score of 13.30.

A fantastic weekend of competition for the Dynamo Team.

Head Coach Debbie Richardson said of the performance “Whilst the experience of Laura and Kelly was an advantage, with this young team the result was an outstanding achievement.”
