Uckfield-trained trampolinist Erifilly Heonos has been selected to represent Great Britain in a competition in Portugal in July.
Erifilly, 15, who trains with the Sky High Trampoline & DMT Club, at Fun Abounds, on the Bellbrook Estate, has also qualified for the British Championships in September and is hoping to qualify there for the World Age Group Championships to be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, in November.
In addition Erifilly, who lives in Lewes and is home-schooled, is also training towards the Youth Olympics in Argentina in 2018. Only one female and one male will be selected to compete from this country. Three girls, including Erifilly are in contention.
Sky High Coach Gail Andrews said Erifilly was doing very well. “She has a little bit of work to do if she is to be selected for the Youth Olympics. She has the talent, all the moves and the level of difficulty, just needs to work on the technique and execution.”
