Scottish Gymnastics has announced the fourteen gymnasts selected for trampoline performance programmes for 2022-23 following a profiling day on Sunday 4 December.
Keir Davidson from Tiggers Trampoline Club and Sarah Gallacher from Sparta have both been re-selected for the British Gymnastics senior development squad for 2023, in addition to being named on the Scottish Gymnastics national performance programme (NPP)
Keir and Sarah have seen medal success in the last year, making their debut at the European Championships in Italy and winning team medals for Great Britain, as well as claiming podium spots at this year’s British Championships.
Four gymnasts join them on the NPP, with six gymnasts named for the performance pathway programme (PPP). Two gymnasts are announced for the development programme which was introduced in 2021.
All programmes are delivered together and led by technical lead, Gary Short with the support of physical preparation consultant, Paul Coyle. The aim of the programmes is to support current and future FIG level gymnasts and coaches in developing the skills required to expand and sustain the talent pool of trampoline gymnasts and allow them to succeed and progress onto the British pathway.
Scottish Gymnastics performance manager, Wendy Purdie said:
It has been an exciting year following the success of trampoline gymnasts in Scotland. With the development and retention of dedicated gymnasts on the programmes, as well as opportunities for them to compete on the international stage, there has been a lot to be proud of. We look forward to following the next year of activity for the selected gymnasts and coaches.
