The BEST in the WORLD train at Milton Keynes!
Megan Kealy is celebrating the ultimate accolade a sports person could dream of as she is crowed World Champion at the recent World Championships held in Sofia, Bulgaria earlier this month.
The club are also celebrating other World medallists too with Jack Leahy coming a spectacular Second and Naana Oppon bringing Team GB home the Bronze. Jack Leahy missed out on the coveted World Champion position as his fellow GB teammate narrowly beat him to Gold.

Six tumblers from Milton Keynes Gymnastics competed and all six of them qualified for the World Finals. The final placements of the MK 6 were:
Naana Oppon – 11-12 Girls. 3rd Place, Malakai Bojang – 11-12 Boys. 7th Place

18 Tumblers qualified for British Championships for Milton Keynes Gymnastics.
On the 16th – 17th April and 7th – 8th May 2016 Milton Keynes Gymnastics attended their hugely anticipated Spring Series Events, the first of the two held at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry and second at the fantastic EIS, Sheffield for their chance to obtain the qualifying score for their age group and finish in the top sixteen overall in the Elite categories. This by no means is an easy task with clubs from all over the country fighting out to get their chance to attend the British Championships which will be held at the amazing Echo Arena, Liverpool on the 1st – 3rd July 2016.
The trampolining team from MK Gymnastics put on a good show at the second Southern Region qualifier of 2016 held in Bletchley.
At Level 1, 9-10, Emma Cooper continued her good form from the first qualifying round and was placed second against 25 other competitors. In her first ever competition, new recruit Grace Watson missed out on a medal position by just 0.1 coming in a very respectable 4th overall.
Amelia Hemming, the team’s newest member of the squad, who has only been with us for two weeks was up for the challenge of competition. After falling in her first routine at Level 1, 11-12, she held her nerve during her second routine and was placed 22nd out of 26.
At Level 2, 9-10 two good routines by Ellie Chapman saw her placed a comfortable 2nd. Callum Hiett’s two high scoring routines assured him the top spot at Level 5, 11-12. Natalie Cooper executed her two difficult routines to a good standard and was placed 1st at Level 6, 11-12.
Emma, Grace, Ellie, Callum and Natalie qualified to go forward and compete in the Southern region team qualifier for a chance to represent the Southern region in the regional team finals.
