Ryan Hatfield

 

Ryan Hatfield has proven to be one of the most consistent Synchronised Trampoline competitors over the last decade, regularly posting excellent results in National championships at both junior and senior level.

His first Championships, in 2008, saw Hatfield post a fourth place finish in the Under 15 division, and after not competing in 2009, moved up to both the 17+ and Junior competitions in 2010. Performing admirably, he finished fourth in the 17+ category, and sixth in the Junior competition.

In 2015, he paired with Adrian Wareham, who was in his final National Championships after 43 years of competition. Despite the age difference between the two, both Hatfield and Wareham performed admirably in finishing fourth. 

Hatfield enjoyed arguably his best year to date in 2016, receiving two Bronzes and one Silver at the Indo Pacific Championships. He also managed to performan well at the National Championships later that year placing 6th in Trampoline and Synchronised and then 5th in Double-Mini Trampoline.

 

Ryan's performance continues strong and we are hoping to see more of him during 2017 and onwards.
