cr2018We 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.

cr201822He has been Trampolining since the age of four when he was first taken by his parents. He now represents Orbit who are based at Bletchley Leisure Centre and trains three times a week with them . Orbit use three venues across Milton Keynes and can be contacted at the following email address if anyone would like to learn more about them - This email address is being protected from spambots.

 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.
