Banbury’s newest national champions are celebrating this week after winning gold medals in the British Twirling Championships at Crawley, West Sussex.
Young athletes Aisha Halford, 14, and Anya Buzzard, 10, will hold their titles for a year.
Aisha won two golds – becoming the Solo Intermediate Junior 2 British Champion and the Two Baton Intermediate Junior 2 British Champion.
Anya won the Two Baton Beginner Juvenile 2 championship.
Aisha also caught the eye of national selectors and will represent England in Dublin in July in the World Baton Twirling Federation’s European Cup 2018.
Twirling is a fast-growing sport that combines gymnastics with dance while twirling batons or pom poms.
The Crawley national championships were organised by the British Baton Twirling Sports Association and more than 300 competitors from across the UK took part.
A total of eleven girls from Banbury, aged six to 20 – and all members of the Banbury Cross Twirling Club – competed at Crawley after qualifying at an area competition in Sheffield in February.
In addition to the three national titles, the Banbury athletes collected other silver and bronze podium positions and many top seven final places.
“Our girls did fantastically well. Winning three national championship titles was a massive achievement for our club.
“The girls worked really hard and deserved their success. We are proud of them all.”
“This is the first time I have won a national title, and to win two was more than I could have ever expected.”
“It was really exciting and I enjoyed being there.”
Other notable performers for the Banbury team were Iris Duarte, Billi McFadden, Tammi McFadden, Rita Duarte, Katy Rayner, Kyra Cotter, Abbie Buzzard, Kyra Cotter and Millie Trinder.
A five-girl team in the Twirl Challenge (Billi, Anya, Millie, Katy, Kyra) won the silver medal.

Training sessions are every Monday at Ruscote Hall at 6pm, and every Wednesday at North Oxfordshire Academy at 6pm.
