London Men's Regional News
The Men's Artistic gymnasts have had a busy few weeks, Regional qualifying, London Men's Open and the first of our two Team training sessions before heading off to National Finals next month.
We also had the pleasure of welcoming Carol-Angela Orchard to work with us. CA usually works with the National Squads on their style and performance aspects of their training so it was a real bonus to have her train with us. She was also the one who designed the boys APP routines so we were able to see how she expected them to be performed. Positivity, Style and Confidence were definitely the words of the day!
The boys also had the chance to see how, Youth Olympic Champion, Giarnni Reginni-Moran's recovery from injury was going, building up his skills on High Bar in particular.
All in all we had a really good Team training session and are building in confidence ready for Finals. A massive thank you to Boys Regional Coach; Pete Etherington, for arranging for Carol-Angela to work with our Boys Squad, an invaluable opportunity for all.
The Men's London Open Competition at Redbridge saw outstanding results for the boys, which bode well for the National Finals.
