On the 17th and 18th November the 2012 Coupe Avenir took place in Malmedy in Belguim. Britain was represented in both the women's artistic junior and espoir categories and were extremely successful with the GB team returning home with a total of 14 medals. Catherine Lyons from Europa Gym Club competed in the Espoir Category with Rochelle Douglas attending the event as one of the team coaches.
Day one saw the team and all-around individual finals taking place. Both the espoir and junior teams comfortably won their categories with outstanding performances from all of the gymnasts. The Espoir category was dominant with Gold in the Team Section and Catherine Lyons placing third individually.
Congratulations to all gymnasts and coaches on such fantastic results.
