We had a pretty exciting weekend. DS went to dutch nationals. It was his first season in the B level which is the highest level possible at his age (9) His preliminary round went really ok and while he was competing against much older guys (up to 4 years older) and in this level the time of flight counts, he placed first for finals. But in finals he was closely beaten by a 13 year old, so silver individually for him.

After that he had synchronized competition where he and his partner nailed it and won the national title.

Here is the video I made of the competition. DS is the one in the back in synchronized. They look pretty alike ;-)

Wow that synchro is lovely. It is so nice to watch when they get a partner they "click" with.

Yes we are really happy he can compete together with this other boy. It is a pity he lives a 2 hours drive away from us (which might not be much in US or UK but that is a huge distance for us dutch ;-) But since he is the only other boy in holland at his age and level we are very happy to travel there to practice every now and then. The get along really well and also match perfectly on the trampoline.

Wow, that was awesome!

The synchronized they really move well together-very in tune with each other

And like you said they resemble each other up there which makes the effect even more stunning to watch.

Congratulations! Great accomplishment

Bonus video, after dutch nationals he set himself a goal to jump his age in difficulty. That is a 9,1 difficulty which means 5 double and 5 single connecting somersaults in a 10 jump routine.
And he managed to do so.(and no it is not exactly competition ready yet)
