Arden Daniels is a young gymnast really making a name for himself in the sport.
The East Budleigh youngster attends Drakes School and competes in the colours of Exeter Gymnastics Club.
He recently won silver in the South West England Gymnastics competition held at Barnstaple.
Originally Daniels had been accredited with a bronze medal. However, it has since transpired that the judges had miss-scored his performance and the youngster was upgraded to the silver position!
Arden’s father Benjamin says: “He is always walking around the house on his hands and can do some amazing stunts on the trampoline. There is a position in gymnastics called manor which means that whilst supporting your weight on your hands on the floor your legs are horizontal behind your head. The gm club have said that they have never known anyone this young able to do it. He has a real appetite for the sport and works very hard.”
Young Arden is trying to gain sponsorship through a national company on line and anyone wishing to help the youngster gain votes towards winning sponsorship for gym equipment can help him by visiting http://www.marsmilk.com/fund/arden-berndt?fb
