Five Scarborough Gymnastics Academy gymnasts and coach Nikii Walker will be heading to the European TeamGym Championship in Slovenia.
The final selection event took place on Friday August 12 in Crewe and all teams taking part were successful.
Selection is the highest accolade a teamgym gymnast and coach can achieve and five of the club’s gymnasts have done just that.
Alice Morbey, Brodie Aziz, Damien Quinton, Megan Abigail Coates and Megan Rebecca Coates will officially represent Great Britain at the Championships along with coach Nikii Walker, who has been chosen as a national coach for the women’s GB Teamgym squads.
A delighted Walker said: “This is the club’s highest achievement to date and couldn’t have happened without the amazing support of all the SGA coaching team, personal coaches (Kadie and Evy Walker), zonal coaches and the commitment of the gymnasts and families.
“This is a proud moment for the club, so huge congratulations goes to everybody.
“We are very excited to be involved in such a prestigious event.
“We have set up a Crowdfunding / Just Giving page for the zonal gymnasts to help reach their fundraising target of £5,000 to enable them to attend the event.
“Also if anyone knows of any businesses who may sponsor the gymnasts please email firstname.lastname@example.org”
“We would like to say a huge thank-you to everybody who has donated so far.”
