The gymnastics community is Scotland is sad to hear of the death of Sally Flint.
As an enthusiastic volunteer, Sally dedicated an incredible amount of time and energy over many years, making a significant contribution to the development of gymnastics in Scotland.
As well as being a coach with Balwearie Gymnastics Club and later Fife Network, Sally spent several years as chair of the women’s technical panel. During her time in this role, she helped shape the domestic competition programme and supported numerous international events.
Sally was also a judge and willingly contributed an inordinate number of hours judging at competitions as well as organising and tutoring many courses for aspiring judges. With hard work and dedication, Sally progressed through the judging awards to achieve an International Brevet (the highest level of judging) which enabled her to represent Scotland at many national and international events.
Some of the high points of Sally’s judging career were judging at the Manchester 2002 and Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games, as well as being a technical official at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Sally’s contribution to gymnastics in Scotland will not be forgotten and she will be sadly missed by the wider gymnastics community.
Our thoughts are with Sally’s husband Ray, their two sons and extended family.
Instead of any floral tribute, Sally's family would ask that anyone wishing to celebrate her life might instead make a donation to the Alzheimer's Society.
Sally's cousin, Zoë, is fundraising for this cause and she has established a Just Giving page for this.
