The weekly feature for those that don’t follow all of the social media accounts attached the blog, or have missed the odd post. A look at the goings on over the last week in British WAG.
A relatively quiet week this week before the competitions come thick and fast, as we go into spring.
British Gymnastics shared a couple of photos of senior squad members together, from when Peggy Liddick came to Lilleshall to work with both them and the juniors.
Liverpool’s Lucy Stanhope continues her preparations for the Tokyo World Cup, while at Lilleshall with the Tokyo Olympic squad. Her double double which she first competed at the end of last year looks absolutely huge here, the upright landing position is so impressive.
Also at Lilleshall, Park Wrekin’s Alice Kinsella continues her preparation for the Birmingham World Cup, with her double twisting Yurchenko looking as strong as I’ve seen it.
It was also lovely to see GB senior GB international, and Welsh Commonwealth Games floor silver medalist Latalia Bevan tumbling again. Latalia had ankle surgery a year ago, and has been out of competitive action since as she has made her way through an arduous rehabilitation process. I know I’m far from alone in looking forward to seeing Latalia’s beautiful gymnastics back on the competition floor when she is ready.
It being a leap year this year, on the 29th there was a plethora of beautiful leaps posted by the gymnasts and clubs on instagram. Too many to post them all, I have picked one from each age group to highlight.
Seniors: Amelie Morgan, The Academy
Juniors: Mia Evans, Park Wrekin, photography by Natasha Ince.
Espoirs: Sonia Runcianu, Pinewood
Age Groups: This little lady from City of Preston is a level 4 (Age 9 within this year), and what impressive height, confidence and flexibility she’s showing on beam already. Beautiful work.
From the retired gymnasts, I chose Catherine Lyons. I also chose this photo as my personal choice for leap day on my instagram account. For me, flawless.
