History made as three Welsh male gymnasts selected to represent GB in TeamGym
History was made this week when three Welsh gymnasts were named in the Great Britain squad for the 2022 TeamGym European Championships.
Toby Stewart, Noah Higgs (both aged 15) and Sam Kirby, 16, from Evolve Gymnastics Academy are included as part of the junior men’s team for the championships, which are being staged in Luxembourg from 14th-17th September.
In doing so they become the first male gymnasts from Wales to be selected to represent GB in TeamGym.
Last month, the trio all bagged medals with their Evolve club at the TeamGym British Championships in Sheffield. All three helped Evolve win silver in the in the junior mixed competition, while Sam and Toby also took home silver in the junior mixed micro competition.
At the Europeans Britain will be represented in the mixed, women’s and men’s events in both senior and junior age groups. See the full team announcement here.
Congratulations to all of the gymnasts listed below, as well as their clubs and coaches.
