A schoolgirl from St Albans is on her way to the national gymnastics finals once again after winning the regional championship for a second year.
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.
