Kim Beattie, a three-time competitor at the world championships in double mini-trampoline has been selected to represent Great Britain as part of a 23 strong team at the 2022 Trampoline World Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria on 13 to 20 November 2022.
Five junior trampoline, tumbling and double mini-trampoline gymnasts from Scotland have also been named for World Age Group Competitions which follows the World Championships from 23 to 26 November, also in Bulgaria.
Kim, who is the current Scottish champion, previously won team silver at the worlds in 2017 and 2019 and earlier this year was part of the team to win the first gold medal for GB at the European Championships.
In the age group competition, it would have been a first world-level selection for the recently crowned men’s Scottish DMT champion Ethan Cunningham from JUMP who was selected to compete in the 17-21 men’s DMT category. Unfortunately in the last GB squad camp before the competition, a bad landing lead to an injury which has ruled him out of competing for GB this time around. Following European success earlier this year, Ava Fettes from Banchory is selected in the 15-16 women’s DMT competition.
We’ve seen success for trampoline gymnasts Sarah Gallacher (Sparta Trampoline Club) and Keir Davidson (Tiggers) this year, including winning European Championships gold with their respective junior GB teams. They will compete at the worlds in the 15-16 age group as individuals and in the synchronised competition.
Sapphire’s Lois Anderson has had an exciting few months after being invited to attend the British squad camp in August. She has now been selected for her international debut, competing in the 13-14 women’s tumbling competition.
Congratulations to the gymnasts selected, their coaches and clubs and we look forward to following the competitions next month.
