Lewis Walker

Age: 21

What is your proudest moment?

Proudest moment in my career so far was at the end of my final routine at my first World Championships in Paris. The feeling of performing a winning routine completely matched what I had anticipated, and thought about for several years. It was just very surreal having goals turn into exact reality.

Why do you enjoy your discipline?

I love my discipline as I'm able to express myself through performance while having to be focused and disciplined in the technical side of the sport. I love working closely with a partner in acro because even due to your differences, (i.e. Age, gender or interests) you have a strong common interest in the sport and competing. This is rare in life and has taught me a lot of social and life lessons.

One thing that people don’t know about you..

I can't go the day without listening to music.

What is your aim for the World Games?

To become World Games Champion

Kitty Williams

Age: 16

What is your proudest moment?

My proudest moment as a gymnast was becoming age group World Champion 2016 in China.

Why do you enjoy your discipline?

I love my discipline because as the top I enjoy the thrill of being thrown in the air as well as working with a partner and as part of a team.

One thing that people don’t know about you..

One thing people might not know about me is that I have really bad eyesight and have to wear contact lenses when I train and compete

What is your aim for the World Games?

My aim for the world games is to perform clean routines and win a medal
