Finn gears up for top championships – Deerness Gymnastics Academy

Alnwick lad Finn Gavin will compete against the very best acrobatic gymnasts from around the country this weekend.

The 11-year-old, who belongs to the County Durham-based, is to battle it out at the British Acrobatic Gymnastic Championships.

Finn will be competing in the age group (11-16 years) men’s four event.

The prestigious competition takes place in Stoke-on-Trent on Saturday and Sunday.

He is one of 10 gymnasts from the club travelling to the British Championships.

All of them are coached by Stuart Thompson and Karl Wharton who also coached the club’s senior men’s group to become World Champions in 2012. Stuart praised the ability and commitment of those at the club who have put in many hours of training in the gym and worked with international choreographers to prepare their routines to incorporate strength, agility, flexibility, balance and acrobatic skills for this competition.

Performances at the championships will include intricate balances and multiple and twisting somersaults.
