London Acro Stars Shine Again
12th February 2016
Congratulations to the coaches and gymnasts at our London Acro Clubs, (Heathrow, LBHGC and Richmond), who have achieved selection for the forthcoming Age Group and Senior World Acro Championships.
Our London Gymnastics Chair (Ben Murphy) and our chair of Acro (Christine Brockbank) were delighted on hearing news of the selection.
“In an era where our artistic gymnasts steal all the headlines, it is perhaps easy to dismiss the achievements of other disciplines.
But not only has Acrobatic gymnastics continued to produce consistent medals at European and World level but it is LONDON where most of that medal winning talent comes from.
So let's really feel extremely proud of the continued success of our Acrobatic Gymnastics, their coaches, clubs and support network. We have a new set of superstars to aspire to!"
We wish you all luck in your final training and preparations before you travel to China in March and April.
