After a very successful weekend at the Provincial Gymnastic Championships here in Airdrie, Brayden Hatton-Fearnley has now found himself on team Alberta!
Shannon Hatton-Fearnley, Brayden's mother, said tears were flowing when the announcement was made. She’s very proud of how Brayden did over the weekend.
“He scored first place on trampoline, second place on a double mini trampoline, and then third in tumbling.”
Up next for Brayden is the Western Final which will be from June 2 to June 5 in Port Moody BC and once again, the events are tumbling and trampoline. After that, Brayden would go to Nationals, but his mother says he's not quite at the national level; that will be next year.
Shannon says Brayden has put in countless hours of work and practice to the point where he’s at now.
“He trains Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from five o'clock until eight o'clock. When he's at home, he's nonstop. He's either on the trampoline in the backyard or taking all his equipment over to the field to practice his tumbling.”
Brayden says his overall goal is to compete at a national level and do international competitions like the Olympics later on. He plans on adding more difficulty into his skills and routine and making sure that they're consistent and ready to go for Westerns.
