Baton twirling’s rising star Ysabella Power demonstrated her undoubted potential to claim five first-place finishes at a recent area competition.
The talented nine-year-old, who has been competing in the sport since the age of 18 months, took part in the competition, made up of troupes with varying ages and abilities from across Suffolk and Norfolk, where she took the event by storm with success in five separate categories.
Her success at the competition, has seen her qualify for the national competitions in those five areas, where she will be aiming to be crowned national champion in her age category and continue to fulfil her growing reputation in the sport.
As well her achievements at local level, the Bury Starlets member also attends the British Baton Twirling Sports Association national development squad in a bid to fulfil her ambition of eventually competing at European and international competitions.
“I am obviously really proud of her achievements, particularly this year,” said the youngsters mother Gemma Clarke. “She is so motivated and dedicated to what she does, these achievements and recognition are just rewards for her hard work.
“She has some big ambitions of competing and winning national events and I believe she will accomplish those dreams.”
