GB gymanasts selected from Dolphin School
Sisters Kate and Anya Donnelly have been selected for the GB national squad in Aerobic Gymnastics.
The girls, who attend Dolphin School in Hurst, competed in three events over the year, thereby accruing enough points to earn them a place in the national squads, both for the trio routine and the individual performance.
Kate qualified in Group 1 of the 12-14 year age group and Anya through the national development group for 10-12 year-olds.
After competing in the Alex Strachan Cup and the British Championships, both at Rivermead, as well as the Welsh Open this year, they managed to gain the points needed to take them over the required benchmark.
I had a tiny inkling about the trio, said a delighted Kate, but was very surprised to find out I had done enough to get into the Individuals as well!
The sisters train once a month and hope to be selected to compete for Great Britain, not only at home but also abroad in Portugal, the French Open and possibly the World Championships in two years time. Published: February 5 2013
