Olivia Noonan is jumping for joy after winning a prestigious gymnastics competition.

Olivia is a member of the BEST Gymnastic Centre and has been competing for three years.
The 13-year-old recently attended the Warrington Winter Wonderland competition and came first in the vault and second on the floor meaning she won first prize over the two disciplines for girls aged 12 and over in Lancashire.

“I started gymnastics as my friends did it and I took to it straight away,” said Olivia.
“My favourite event is the beam but I take part in the vault, floor and bar. My next big competition, which includes all four disciplines, is the City of Preston event in March, which is a huge competition in Lancashire.”
Olivia has won a number of trophies and medals over the years and also takes part in Cheer Dance at school.
PE teacher Mrs Pemberton said: “Olivia is very talented and always gives 110 per cent in everything she does in school. She has also choreographed our Year Eight Cheer Dance performance.”
