Sponsored by Masson Glennie – Presented by Jim Conn Treasurer of Aberdeenshire Clubsport on their behalf

2022 was another great year, with a number of successes for Melanie. At two Spring Series, qualifying events run by British Gymnastics, she had very positive results from gymnasts at the British Age Group competition and the British inter regional competition.

The British Championships saw Kim Beattie in 2nd place in the senior ladies, Ava Fettes in 3rd place in 15/16 girls and Nicky Smith in 12th in 17/21 men. She had Nicky Smith and Amber Cameron qualify for the Louie Cup in Portugal with good results and Kim Beattie and Ava Fettes qualify for the World Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria with mixed results, Kim, however, helped the BG senior ladies gain a team silver medal, Kim’s 3rd team medal at a World event.

Melanie was interviewed successfully by Scottish Gymnastics to become the Scottish National Lead Coach for DMT, she was also selected to be the lead DMT coach for Scotland at the Louie Cup this year. There has hardly been time to draw breath in 2022, let’s see what 2023 brings.
