A rising young gymnast celebrated a victory after winning a gold medal in a national competition.
Twelve-year-old Amelia Holland, from Long Eaton, is now a tumbling champion after competing in the National Development Plan finals at the International Arena in Shropshire.
Amelia previously qualified for the nationals at the age of nine but suffered a serious knee injury a week before the competition final.
Tumbling combines some of the skills of artistic gymnastics on the floor with those of trampolining.
“It was nerve-racking,” the young gymnast said.
“But then I felt really happy and proud when I won.”
Sporty Amelia trains in gymnastics four times a week as well as cricket and athletics.
“I go to practice every day at 4.30pm after my homework,” she said.
“It’s difficult to balance with school but I really enjoy it.”
Amelia started performing gymnastics at the age of three with Erewash Valley Gymnastics and now has a total of 25 medals from various competitions and achievements.
The rising star’s grandmother, Tina Rider, spoke on behalf of relatives.
She said: “Her family wish her lots of luck for the future and we are very proud of her.”
