We have returned from Moscow - russia, not the nicest place in the world but we had a fantastic time, we will add all photos we have and hopefully you will get a feel of just how much fun we had. We competed in Senior Group stunt in the Moscow cup. We were placed 5th, which in itself is an achievement, but we were 1 point off 4th place and only 4 off of 3rd. Now that is good. The squads that were placed 1st and 2nd were amazing, To be completely honest we didn't expect italy to be any good at cheerleading but boy they showed us up! we were doing 1 back tuck in a basket and they were doing 2. scores for all those competing in our category will be added shortly. Check out the result below, followed by the photos.

We would firstly like to thank Jeoff, Trish and Enfield Blaze, Sharyn and Gemini and Suzanne and Red hot firestarters for an amazing time, You were all fab and we did the UK proud.
Above is the Arena the competition was held in, along with some photos of the uk Squads. We are in the back somewhere, enfield blaze along the front, and gemini also at the back, The Firestarters had not arrived yet.
These are us in the arena, in the opening ceromony, At the end waiting for the results the UK sat in one big circle. and we also learnt some russia dancing.
This is a picture of us all pointing at Pete Weston;s Finger, This is the music Finger, without this the Tornados would not be able to perform, and we thought it was about time the music mans finger got its photo on the site.
This is the hotel we stayed in, it was huge.
It was a long day, these are pics from our changing room, where most of the squads slept!!
Darren and Ben just before getting ready to perform!!
