Gymnasts’ success on the national stage leads to Middle Eastern trip for trio
THE acrobatic gymnastics senior women’s group from West Street Gym in Gorseinon won gold medals at the 2019 British Championships held in Liverpool over the weekend.
The trio consists of Emily Stock, Hannah Jenkins and Katie Jenkins, who are pictured left with their coach Lisa Thomas.
“There was a lot of pressure on the gymnasts as the competition was also being used as a trial for the upcoming European Championships,” said Lisa.
“I was delighted with the girls’ performance in all three of their routines and this has resulted in the confirmation that we will be travelling to Israel to represent Great Britain in October.”
The trio are choreographed by senior coach Sophie Bevan.
A West Street club spokeswoman added: “Everyone in the club is very proud of their performance. A big thanks for the support offered by everyone at the club, parents, local businesses and councillors.”
