Newman turns on the style

Josh Newman came away from the north Gala in South Shields with double gold.

The 14-year-old from Billericay turned on the style to win the individual competition. He produced an excellent set to reach the voluntary routine as the top-ranked participant and stepped up a gear to earn a mark of 12.7.

Newman then teamed up with Rhys Northover and dominated the Synchro event, with the pair going on to claim their fourth consecutive success.

Victory in the World Age Games set test event completed a memorable weekend for Newman who now turns his attentions to next month’s National finals.
