British Team Announced for European Championships

British Gymnastics has announced its woman’s team for the European Championships beginning next week in Bern, Switzerland.

“For the senior girls this is another big step on the road to Rio and a chance to compete some new skills and combinations that they’ve been working on in preparation for the Games. The juniors have the opportunity to compete at a major championships as they ready themselves for the step up to senior level and so we’re looking for clean, consistent routines to see how they fare against some strong European opposition.” – Women’s Head National Coach, Amanda Reddin
