In July, five of our Students will represent Team GB at the 16th International Gymnestrada in Austria. The girls Holly, Lucie, Isla, Izzy and Kate all attend Saltaire Gym Club and are part of the Competition Group.
The event which takes place every four years will see gymnasts from 60 countries take part in the world's largest gymnastics festival, with the British Team putting on their biggest performance ever. Last weekend the participants got together to practise their routines and get their Team GB Kit.
All the gymnasts from the club who are going to Austria, have spent the last year fundraising and have accumulated nearly £9,500. This money has paid for the Volunteer Coaches at the club to go with them and provide a fund to cover transport costs.
