Read about Edward's experience of competing at the qualifiers for the 2018 British Trampolining Championships.

I’m pleased to say that todays qualifiers for the British Championships went really well.

My first routine of the competition started great. It was a tidy, consistent routine and placed me in fourth position. This was a good position to be in going through to the voluntary routines.

Although my set Routine was not the best I could have done it was a safe, strong routine which is great because with the build-up to British qualifiers consistency is key. My second routine had a major mistake going into the second skill however I managed to recover the routine really well and finish it without any more major errors. This put me into third place for the Senior gold category at the English qualifiers.

This, however, was not my only discipline to be competing in today; seven weeks prior I began training in double mini-trampoline. Today’s competition gave me the chance to get a trial for DMT and with four successful passes I actually placed 1st in the Senior DMT competition.

Overall I left the competition completing all my routines and passes, placing myself in a strong qualifying position for the championships and walking away with two medals.
