Olympic silver medallist Bryony Page is looking forward to meeting spectators and gymnasts at the British Championships as she continues her comeback to competition. Bryony has been recovering from ankle surgery over the last few months which unfortunately mean she is unable to compete this year, however she will be in Liverpool for the whole weekend supporting the gymnasts and meeting all her supporters.
Bryony said: “The support I’ve had since Rio 2016 has been incredible and I’ve really enjoyed having the opportunity to meet so many aspiring trampoline gymnasts and share stories and love for our amazing sport. After Rio I elected to have surgery to fix a long-term ankle issue so that I could continue trampolining for many more years to come. Unfortunately, after returning to the trampoline for several months at the start of the year it became apparent that I needed further ankle surgery, which took place in June and has delayed my return to competition. Sadly, this means I won’t be competing at the British Championships later this month. It’s really disappointing as it’s a competition that means a lot to me and this will be the first time I haven’t competed since my first British Championships in 2001. I’m currently working with the British Gymnastics EIS medical team on my rehab programme with a positive outlook and moving forwards to a full recovery and return to competition as soon as possible. As one door closes another one opens and I am delighted to say I will be attending the event to watch the competition, meet the spectators, gymnasts and volunteers, and work alongside the British Gymnastics media team. I want to thank everyone for their continued support and wish all the gymnasts and coaches the best of luck for an enjoyable and successful competition."
