(6 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)



Hannah Whelan and Kristian Thomas won the senior all-around titles at the 2011 English Gymnastics Championships, held Saturday and Sunday in Stoke-on-Trent. Three-time world champion Beth Tweddle unveiled new routines on uneven bars and floor exercise.

Hannah Whelan (Liverpool) and Kristian Thomas (Earls) won the senior all-around titles at the 2011 English Gymnastics Championships, held Saturday and Sunday in Stoke-on-Trent.

Whelan, a 2008 Olympian and the 2010 British champion, won vault (14.00) and floor exercise (whip-triple twist mount; 14.35). She won silver medals on uneven bars (Maloney to Gienger between the bars; 14.25) and balance beam (14.00). Whelan scored 56.60, more than a point higher than she had during the all-around final at the 2010 Worlds in Rotterdam.

Jennifer Pinches, also of Liverpool, was a close second with 56.05. Danusia Francis (Heathrow) took third (52.65).

Three-time world champion Beth Tweddle (Liverpool) showed yet another new routine on uneven bars (toe-on full, toe-on Tkatchev-half to Yezhova to immediate Maloney-half, 15.70). On floor exercise, she had some trouble with her tumbling but debuted new choreography by Adriana Pop (13.90). (Tweddle's name in the results are followed by MBE, signifying her distinguished rank as a Member of the Order of the British Empire.)

"This first competition for the year allowed many of the participants to try their new skills and routines," said Adrian Stan, women's technical director at British Gymnastics. "Quite naturally, their fitness is not at the highest level as yet, but we can gradually continue to build on towards the European championships in April and the worlds in October. Hannah Whelan demonstrated visible improvement and Jennifer Pinches and Danusia Frances also had some good performances. All in all, an encouraging beginning of the season!"

In the men's competition, world team member Kristian Thomas scored a solid 88.60 to win comfortably. Matthew Firth (Leeds) took second with 85.35, followed closely by Junior European pommel horse champion Max Whitlock (South Essex) with 85.10.

Eddie Van Hoof, men's technical director at British Gymnastics, praised the setup at the Stoke-on-Trent facility, Fenton Manor.

"The good competition environment, good equipment and good facility helped many gymnasts to experiment with their new routines," Van Hoof said. "There is still work to be done in stabilising them in the run up to the key competitions for the year, but the overall impression is that the level of performance was excellent! Highlights of the championships were the outstanding vaulting of Theo Seager and the classy performance of the all-around winner Kristian Thomas. The best feature of this competition is the tremendous depth in the men's field across all levels and ages. So far - safe and sound work with potential for the future!"

Rebecca Tunney (Liverpool) and Nile Wilson (Leeds) won the junior all-around titles, while Amy Tinkler (South Durham) and Loukas Jones (Leeds) scored victories in the Espoirs (Hopes) category.
