Tumblers from Deerness Gymnastics Academy will be competing for again for Great Britain in the Loule Cup in Portugal, hoping to build on the clubs recent international success.

Three tumblers from the north east club have been picked by Great Britain to take part in the International tumbling tournament.

Tom MacGuire (16), Sophie Allen (12) and Steven Gilmore (19) will be competing for the first time.

After the club’s recent success for Great Britain in international competitions, Deerness Gymnastics Academy is hoping it can help GB to once again achieve success this time in Portugal.

“It is fantastic that Deerness tumblers are continuing to be picked to represent Great Britain at international level and continuing to win medals on the international stage,” said Glen Wharton, head of tumbling at Deerness Gymnastics Academy.

“It is always a great honour to represent your country and it’s down to the hard work of all the tumblers and coaches, who have achieved success and recognition not just at national but also international level.”
