PIPERS Vale Gymnastics Club hosted a spectacular international on Saturday where the Great Britain team produced some stunning displays to come out on top against Denmark.

The GB squad featured several strong performances, with Ryan Bradley coming out on top individually with 86.550 points, closely followed by Basildon's Danny Lawrence in second place who secured 84.950 points.

The event was part of an ongoing warm-up to the forth-coming world championships in Denmark.

Andy Wood, Pipers Vale head coach, said: “It was probably the best competition I've ever run.

“We've been complimented on how good the facilities we've got here are and the Danish team have approached me about running an international training camp here next year.

“It was not only a great event for the club, but also for Ipswich as a town.”
