A trio from Richard's Trampoline Club travelled to Birmingham for the second grade one competition of the season.

With different goals in mind - hoping to achieve the required score to stay at grade one next year or trying out new, harder routines - all three were determined to do well.

Michael Dodson was in a great position, having already qualified to stay at grade one next year and for the British Championships in the summer.

After a shaky start left him down in 13th place, he successfully completed two excellent routines, using his highest difficulty value yet at this level. This moved him up to fourth place, narrowly missing out on a medal.

Charlie Mussino was hoping to gain the required marks to remain at grade one next year.

He was happy with the routines he completed but missed the retaining score by just 0.1.
