A MUSSELBURGH gymnastics star won gold at a British Championships at the weekend. . . for the fourth year in succession.

Fifteen-year-old Fraser McLeod claimed gold at the British Gymnastics Tumbling, Trampolining and DMT (double mini trampoline) Championships in Birmingham.

After making the journey south on Friday evening, McLeod booked his place in Sunday’s final, qualifying in first position with a preliminary score of 69.00.

And in the final, the Musselburgh Grammar School pupil produced a superb performance to storm to the title; second place went to Ireland’s Luke Hunter.

His mum Julie told Courier Sport: “It is a fantastic achievement proving that hard work and dedication pays off.”

And the youngster's dad Steven added: "We are very proud of Fraser and cant believe this is his fourth consecutive Great Britain gold medal in DMT (Double MinI Trampolining).

"Fraser is looking forward to moving up in age category next season and developing his skills further.

"We enjoy watching him compete and he has the support of all his family and friends which gives him so much encouragement.

"He has Scottish Championships this weekend at the Bells Centre in Perth and we hope he continues to excel going into seniors."

The teenager is a member of Saltire Teamgym, based at Meadowmill near Tranent, and is preparing for a trip to Odivelas, Portugal next month to compete in the European Teamgym Championships.

It will be a second appearance at the championships for McLeod following his bronze team medal win in Slovenia in 2016, and he will perform in the junior mixed team in Portugal.
