Kelien Fulgence, Derryn Hailes, Daniil Mykytyn, Daniel Rynkevic, Emily Verrier and Dennis Voinovan and all travelled to Buckinghamshire for the competitive event.

After a string of impressive displays, gold medals were won by Fulgence, Rynkevic and Mykytyn.

Hailes, Verrier and Voinovan, meanwhile, all took home bronze medals from the competition in High Wycombe after performing well.

The youngsters will aim to use those medals as a springboard for more success at other competitions in the coming weeks.
