Men's pair Frazer Windows and Finlay Gray have won a brilliant bronze medal at the Acrobatic World Cup in Las Vegas.
Competing a very clean, entertaining and energetic routine amongst some tough competition, Frazer and Finlay did enough to finish on the podium, just behind Germany who took silver and Kazakhstan who won gold.
Men's pair Aidan Lim and James Jeffery, competing in their first World Cup as a partnership, finished a very creditable 6th, and mixed pair Finlay Cochrane and Kirsten Owen also came 6th in a strong field dominated by Russia and Belarus.
At the Artistic World Cup in Doha, Great Britain's Giarnni Regini-Moran finished in 4th on vault. Having qualified through to the final with a score of 14.599, he then bettered it in the final, scoring 14.650 to finish less than 0.050 off a medal.
Courtney Tulloch successfully made the rings final, but fell just short on his dismount, scoring 13.700 to finish 8th. Emily Thomas also did well, successfully qualifying in 8th place for the vault final before scoring 13.849 in the final to finish 6th. Emily also just missed out on the uneven bars final, finishing 10th in qualifying with 12.700.
Jake Jarman and Phoebe Jakubczyk also gained valuable experience at their first World Cup as senior gymnasts. Jake scored a 14.399 average across his two vaults to finish 14th in qualifying, and 13.733 on floor to finish 18th. Phoebe finished 19th in vault qualifying, scoring a 13.299 average and 18th on uneven bars, scoring 11.733.
