Brodie Davis, 12, took home the bronze medal in the under-14s category of the National Finals Gymnastics Competition at Birmingham’s GMAC centre last weekend.

The gymnast, who attends The Benjamin Britten Music Academy, in Blyford Road, started gymnastics eight years ago and currently trains with Waveney Gymnastics.

His father, Paul Davis, a professional boxer, said he was proud of his son’s achievements.

He said: “The strenuous training he does daily to compete at a high level of gymnastics is amazing.

“With my boxing training I thought it was hard going but it’s nothing compared to the hours he puts in the gym – three and a half hours every night.”

Along with the bronze medal Brodie also won gold as part of the east England team and secured a training week with internationally renowned coaches at Lilleshall National Sports Centre.
