Phoebe Peacock, who attends Cunningham Hill Junior School, took the crown in the competition in Ipswich.

It saw her compete in five separate events against 27 other girls and she took the win on the floor, the bars and the range and conditioning disciplines.

That was enough to take the title of regional champion and gain qualification to the national final in Stoke-on-Trent.

The 10-year-old, who has been competing for five years and goes to Sapphire Gymnastics Club in Hemel Hempstead, has high hopes for the national finals as well.

She said: "Winning the regional title for the second year running was amazing.

"I love the competitions and I am very excited to be competing at the National Championships again this year."
