REBOUND Gymnastics Club star Jessica Bateman is celebrating becoming the county level five champion after a fine performance earlier this month.

The seven-year-old backed up her recent form, which has seen her become the club’s junior champion, with the win.

In April Jessica competed against 70 other gymnasts in her first West Midlands Regional Competition at Grade 14 and came away with a bronze medal.

Jessica’s coach, Erin Simpson, said she has shown natural strength and flexibility as she has progressed from training one hour a week to four times a week.

“Jessica was a very shy little girl when she first joined the club and it has been wonderful to see her confidence grow through her participation in the sport,” she added.
