A club spokesperson said: ‘‘Congratulations to all our members who were chosen to represent their country - Craig Fyfe and Graham Ross for both trampoline and DMT; Kim Beattie, Jovita Fawcett, Katie Forbes and Charlotte Clarke all for DMT. This was an individual competition and a whole team event.

‘‘Graham Ross had success on trampoline, finishing in bronze medal position and gold medal position for DMT. Kim Beattie finished in silver medal position for DMT.

‘‘Poor Charlotte broke her ankle training just before the competition and was unable to compete however she bravely still went down to Perth to support her team mates.
