Our 2015 British Championships promise to be a spectacle of jaw dropping gymnastics with our Olympic, World and European stars fighting for the prestigious titles. With the World Championships taking place in Glasgow later this year and serving as qualification for Rio, the competition will be fiercer than ever to take gold and steal the spotlight.  Gymnasts will pull out their biggest moves to impress and outdo each other.

Competition lowdown
Sunday’s competition see’s the top eight apparatus specialists battle it out to take individual titles. For the women, the juniors and seniors compete separately and for the men we see the master’s event which includes the top eight qualifiers across all age groups (Under 16/Under 18 and seniors).

The first session includes senior women’s vault and uneven bars, the junior women’s uneven bars and beam and men’s masters’ floor, pommel horse and rings. With an array of world stars on the women’s uneven bars this will surely be and exciting event and the men’s pommel is always a closely fought battle between World and Olympic champions.

In the second session, we see the senior women’s balance beam and floor exercise, the junior women’s floor exercise and vault and the men’s masters vault, parallel bars and horizontal bar. Things really start to step up a gear as the women must control their nerves for the balance beam and must pull out all the stops on the floor as they perform all out for titles. The men finish with the horizontal bar, always a spectacular and daring event it will be sure to have you on the edge of your seat.

Alongside the event finals, for only the second ever time the top eight male and four female disability gymnasts in the country will compete for their apparatus titles.  This is a great opportunity for the gymnasts to experience the thrill of competing on a world class artistic gymnastics podium in a fantastic venue in front of thousands of spectators. This will be a great experience our gymnasts, who will look to help raise the profile of disability gymnastics in this country and inspire the next generation of budding disability gymnasts.
