GB success at Kawasaki Cup - British Gymnastics

GB success at Kawasaki Cup


Our trampoline gymnasts were in the medals with strong performances at the Kawasaki Cup in Japan.

In the ladies event, Isabelle Songhurst marked her GBR senior debut with a superb silver medal joined on the podium by Laura Gallagher who took bronze in her return to international competition.

Andrew Stamp took bronze in the 15-16yr boys event with Alex Bradshaw also winning bronze in the 17-18yr category. 

Our delegation trained at the Japanese Institute of Sports Science, Tokyo in the run up to the event on the back of the Japan team training at Lilleshall National Sports Centre in early December. Our gymnasts visited a local elementary school as part of the visit, answering questions and joining students for lunch. 

The trip further establishes the strong relationship between the British and Japanese Federations that we will continue to build on through this Olympic cycle.
