Former Calderdale School of PE member Craig Lowther is reported to be delighted with Great Britain’s trampoline silver medal at the Rio Olympics.

Sheffield-based Bryony Page became the first British woman to win an Olympic medal in the sport on Friday.

Lowther, a former gymnast and coach in Halifax, is head national coach for tumbling and trampolining.

He now lives in Wakefield, where he runs his own gym, but his parents still in Hove Edge.

Kat Driscoll and Nathan Bailey also competed well as Great Britain’s trio exceeded predictions.

Lowther’s father David said: “We have been speaking on and off with Craig and as you would expect he is overjoyed at the team’s performance and their well earned success.”
