Kira Ward

        

Kira Ward’s strong performances at junior level both at a national and international level have cemented her place as one to watch over the coming years.

Bursting onto the scene in 2009 with a second placing in the Double Mini Trampoline and third in the Synchronised Trampoline competition, it wasn’t long until Ward was able to influence international competition, finishing a sensational third on the Double Mini Trampoline at her first attempt at the World Age Competition in 2011.

She backed this up with a fourth place in the 2013 edition of the World Age Championships in Bulgaria before winning both the Trampoline and Synchronised Trampoline competitions at the 2014 Indo Pacific Championships. In-between, she accumulated eight National titles.

In 2015, Ward was able to win National titles for Trampoline and Double Mini Trampoline, but narrowly missed out on a hat-trick of titles, finishing second in the Synchronised Trampoline competition.
