GYMNASTS SELECTED FOR FIRST TUMBLE PERFORMANCE PROGRAMME

Following the recent selection process, Scottish Gymnastics is pleased to announce that 16 gymnasts and 8 coaches have been selected to the first tumbling performance pathway programme (PPP) in Scotland. 

The brand-new performance programme aims to expand the talent pool and develop Scottish gymnasts to British and world performance level. 

Scottish Gymnastics Performance Manager, Wendy Purdie, is excited about the future of the sport in this country. She said: “This is a fantastic time for tumbling in Scotland as we select the first gymnasts and coaches onto the Performance Pathway Programme (PPP).

“The aim of this programme is to have more Scottish gymnasts competing at FIG British Championships and achieving podium finishes.  The selected gymnasts and coaches will be supported through a series of non-residential camps led by Dan Lannigan, who brings a wealth of experience to the role as a former British tumbler and current member of the GB coaching team.”

Congratulations to all the gymnasts and coaches who have been selected to the programme!
