Rhythmic Gymnastics National Championships 2010

28 07 2010

Covered the Rhythmic Gymnastics National Championships at Stoke on Trent on the 10th July.The arena at Fenton Manor Sports Centre always provides a challenge. Typical meter readings are 500th second at F2 with a film speed of 2000 asa. The mat the gymnasts perform on is light in colour and this does help reflect some light from the overhead fluorescent lighting. This year with so many entries the Championships ran over three days. I drove down to Stoke on the Saturday and was able to photograph the Seniors,Juniors ,Age Groups and GMPD gymnasts.

The grace and artistry of these gymnasts is clear for all to see.

Francesca Jones from City of Birmingham celebrated a full sweep of five gold medals at this year’s British Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships at Fenton Manor Leisure Complex.  She won her fourth British overall title with a total of 94.475 pts, 5.175 pts. ahead of Lynne Hutchison (City of Bath), 89.300, with Francesca Fox (also City of Bath) following closely in third place, 88.475.
