National Team and Masters Championships - November 2015
Congratulations to Tiffany who maintained her form at the National Jump Rope Team and Masters Championships in Bellshill, near Glasgow on Saturday 21st November after only 6 weeks of training. She came 5th in 30 second speed, 3rd in 3 minutes speed, 4th in freestyle and got gold in a 4 x 30 second speed relay with 3 girls from Jump Rope UK in Redditch. It was great to catch up with the other skippers around the country, particularly as she is now having to train by herself at university.
