CWC Student Wins British Gymnastics Championship

City of Westminster College student and gymnast Marfa Ekimova has been crowned senior British rhythmic champion.

Marfa, who is currently studying for an NCFE Level 3 Diploma/Extended Diploma in Sport and Physical Activity, triumphed at the championships held at the Telford International Centre to become senior all-round champion.

With a highly impressive score of 107.000, Marfa proved unbeatable as she took gold in the hoop, ball, and clubs events.

Having also successfully qualified for the British national team and competing at the World Challenge Cup in Portimao, Marfa’s latest success is the latest in a long line of achievements in her career.

Marfa is coached by Villy Antonova and Rachel Ennis and is a member of West London Gymnastics.

She has done a tremendous job of balancing both her impressive career in rhythmic gymnastics and her studies, achieving great success in both.

In her spare time, Marfa is a passionate music lover, especially playing the bassoon and piano, and studies A Level music at Trinity Laban Conservatory.

City of Westminster College, and the entire United Colleges Group, sincerely congratulates Marfa on her astonishing success and wishes her ever success in her future career.

Stephen Davis, Group Principal and CEO of the United Colleges Group, said:

“Time and again Marfa proves that she is a young athlete with a staggering amount of talent, drive, and ambition and we at the United Colleges Group could not be prouder of her.

“To win a British championship is an amazing result and I’m sure that Marfa is delighted to have her hard work and training recognised in this way.

“All of us at the United Colleges Group send our best wishes to Marfa and we will be supporting her all the way in the future.”
