The girls have been able to practice in the world-renowned Top Gun Allstars gym, and have been competing at ESPN Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World Resort.

Head coach Amy said: “It has been very emotional to see the girls on the floor, some of whom I've been teaching for 10 or more years!

“Seeing them progress over the years and fulfil a lifetime dream to be on that stage, is incredible and they all deserve to realise their dreams today!”

The Herts Allstars will be competing today at 7.35pm GMT.
