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.”
