2017 Northern European Championships
Good luck to the Scottish delegation heading over to the Northern European Championships in the Faroe Islands this weekend, 21 and 22 October.
Last year in Norway, our men’s team won bronze as well as three bronze and a silver medal in the all round competition and individual apparatus finals. This year the Northern European Championships features as a qualification event for artistic gymnastics Gold Coast Commonwealth Games selection.
Following an injury sustained at the World Championships in Montreal, Dan Purvis will unfortunately miss the event in the Faroe Islands as will training partner Frank Baines. We wish them both a speedy recovery.
