TPS Student Jemima Aims For Gold in Malta

10/12/2017

Year 10 student, Jemima Dorling, has been a gymnast for 5 years.  She started off at gymnastics clubs in Portsmouth and Chichester before going for a trial session at Crystal Palace Gymnastics Club in London. She was selected for the Women’s Artistic Team and trains there for 8 hours every weekend.

Jemima has already won an impressive collection of medals for beam, vault, floor and bars, including Gold in an international competition in Colchester last year and Gold in a national Gems completion recently.  At a national competition last Sunday, she won Gold on bars and Silver on beam.

Jemima and the team are off to Malta in November for another international competition.

Jemima says, “It is a big commitment, but my ambition is to make it into the 2020 Olympics.”
