3rd September 2019

On Sunday 1st September 2019, Mitchell competed in the Men’s London Open. This was Mitchell’s final national competition in which he would be in the Under 18’s category.

Last year, at the same event, Mitchell placed 4th on the Parallel Bars scoring 12.550 points, just 0.200 points from third place. In the English Championships, he had also placed 5th both this year, and in 2018 on the Parallel Bars. This time, Mitchell had upgraded his Parallel Bars routine in hopes of finishing within the top three competitors.

Mitchell had a clean competition on Sunday, finishing 7th in Britain in the all-around competition, 9th on the High Bar, and 2nd on the Parallel Bars picking up the silver medal. His results from Sunday were a nice way for Mitchell to end his time as a junior gymnast, and will allow him to move up confidently into the senior category, starting in the new year.
