A MUSSELBURGH trampolining starlet won his third successive British title in Liverpool.

Fraser McLeod, from the Two Foot Higher club, claimed double mini trampoline (DMT) gold in the elite level 15-16 at the Trampoline and Tumbling British Championships.

His success came after victory in a younger age category in the last two years, and was topped off with a silver medal in trampoline.

In winning gold, the 14-year-old Musselburgh Grammar School pupil also achieved the score required to compete at the FIG Trampoline Gymnastics World Age Group Competitions in Bulgaria next month.

McLeod’s coaches Kyle Lancashire and Bruce Craig were delighted with the county star’s performance

Kyle said: “Going into the competition with the aim of defending his British Championship DMT title, Fraser knew he was going to have to step up his game from previous years.

“He had been working hard over the last year to improve his difficulty, form and consistency.

“He was up against some very talented performers, plus he had the added pressure of aiming to attain the score to qualify to compete at the World Age Group Championships.

“In the actual competition, Fraser kept a cool head and executed four of the best passes he has ever done, resulting in him winning the British title for the third year in a row and qualifying to compete at the World Age Groups in November.”

And Fraser’s mum Julie told Courier Sport: “It was just amazing.

“My husband and I are extremely proud of Fraser and his achievements.

“This is not only a testament to his hard work but also the support and patience he receives from his coaches Bruce and Kyle.

“Two Foot Higher is a fantastic local trampolining and DMT club and without their encouragement and belief in Fraser he would not be where he is today.

“He is delighted to have been chosen to represent GB at the Worlds in Bulgaria next month and we hope he does his club, Scotland and Britain proud.”

His busy schedule continued at the weekend, as the talented teenager travelled to Portugal with the Great Britain DMT squad to compete in the Loule Cup.

Recently his family held a fundraiser at Musselburgh Rugby Club, raising more than £3,000 to help towards funding the trip.

Julie added: “We have been overwhelmed by the support we have received from family, friends and the local community and are truly appreciative as everything is self funded.”

Meanwhile, City of Edinburgh Trampoline Club, who train in East Lothian, won 18 medals at the Scottish Championships, held in Perth. Both Lauren Millar and Ciara Donlevy won national trampoline titles, while there were seven successes in DMT, for Lacey Smith, Crawford Greig, Bruce McDougall, Leah Borthwick, Madeline Smith, Ava Harvey and double-champion Millar.

As well as those nine gold medals, CETC members won five silvers and four bronze medals.
