Norwich’s Rainbow Twirlers succeed at national championships

A Norwich club has competed successfully in the British Baton Twirling Sports Association's national championships and returned with a haul of trophies and medals.

Rainbow Twirlers, which holds practice sessions at Open Academy, Heartsease, travelled to Crawley, in West Sussex, for the three-day event over the bank holiday weekend.

The club came away with its first ever national champions when Aimee Bagley, 14, became national champion in her dance twirl category, while Jodie Rodic, 18, and Tasha Street, 17, won their duo event.

Tasha and her sister Danielle, 21, rounded off a great weekend for club by winning their fancy strut groups.

Alongside those winning performances, Rainbow Twirlers collected a total of 19 top 10 places over the the weekend and had members climb the podium on nine occasions, making it by far its most successful national championships since the club was formed nearly six years ago.

Its members are now working hard preparing for the team national championships which will be held in October.

The club is run by Kerri White and Sarah Cousins.
