BRAD Lewis, aged 13, has once again become the South West Intercounties over-12 gymnastics champion.

Brad competed in Barnstaple where, as well as gaining the overall trophy, he also picked up a bronze medal on floor, silver medals on pommel horse, parallel bars and high bar, and gold on rings.

Brad attends the Bishop of Hereford`s Bluecoat school, and trains at Fromeside Gymnastics club near Bristol.

Brad`s success is due to his dedication and the hard work from his coach Karen Brewer, so much so that Fromeside came third out of all the many clubs from all over the South West region that took part.
