 Published on: 18th May 2023   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Cheerleaders from Kings Langley have triumphed in a global tournament, with two teams finishing in second and third place.

In the last edition of KingsNews, we reported that two teams from Twisted Cheer & Dance would be heading to Sweden for the JAMfest Nordic competition on May 6.

The two teams, Nemesis and Retribution, competed against international teams, with Retribution coming second and Nemesis coming third.

Speaking about the competition, head coach Ben Vasey-Howe said they were all unbelievably proud of the teams.

He said: “They represented British cheerleading at its best with their attitude, performance and team mentality; they did us proud and they’re still on a massive high.

“For Retribution, they were in a division of 32 and they announced the results all the way from 32, so some of the youngest members were already crying with joy when they got to about 15th place.

“They were the only UK-based teams, and they had the best time. They had some of the Swedish teams asking for photos; they were like little celebrities for the day.”

Due to the point score Nemesis received, they will now be heading to compete in The Summit competition in Florida in early 2024.

Ben added that overall it was a great trip, with the coaches, athletes and parents all on good form.
