  1. Is it possible for an official from British Gymnastics to explain why Zoe Simmons and Megan Splain are both listed for next year’s junior squad despite the fact that they both turn senior next year?


    • I don’t know whether squad selection is something that they would be prepared to comment on to be honest, you would need to contact British Gymnastics ask them.
      I have no idea myself, but of course there will be a reason for it. It may be that as the squads are only three months at a time, it was decided that it would be more beneficial for Megan and Zoe to spend another few months in the Junior Squad before joining the seniors.
