Well done to gymnasts and coaches, some great results.

I think it’s safe to assume that English junior champion Alice Kinsella and  British champion Maisie Methuen who were absent today have booked their spots on the junior European team, along with Taeja James. The remaining places will be interesting to see, if all of the British juniors were at full strength this would have been a huge fight with so many talented gymnasts to choose from!
