INVERURIE gymnast, Mitchell MacKenzie (9) will join the team representing Scotland at the British National Club Grade Finals in Mens Artistics Gymnastics in Birmingham in November.

Mitch, who attends Logie Durno Primary School, took the Grade 1 Silver medal at the Scottish Regional Finals at the Bells Sport Centre in Perth last Sunday where he competed along with other gymnasts from Beacon Boys Gymnastics Club, part of Aberdeen Gymnastics Trust in Bridge of Don, where he is coached by Duncan Runcie.

The competition involved competing in six disciplines: Floor, Vault, Pommel, High Bar, Parallel Bars and Rings, and his consistent high scores brought him second place overall.

He first started gymnastics with Holly Fromholc at the Garioch Sport Centre where he regularly trains after school with Inverurie GSC Gymnastics Club.
