Gymnastic gem gearing up for two big competitions – Northumberland Gazette

A talented gymnast from Felton is relishing the prospect of competing at two major events, which will pit him against national and international acrobats.

Finn Gavin will be heading to the British Championships in Liverpool this weekend, before representing Great Britain in the Acrobatic European Championships in Germany in September.

The 13-year-old, who trains at Durham’s Deerness Gymnastics Academy, will be competing in the 12-18 age group for men’s four.

His team will consist of fellow Deerness members Michael Gill, 17, from Ponteland, Nathan Brady, 17, from Durham, and Ryan Dury, 18, of Teesside, for both events.

Last year, Gavin, Gill and Brady won both the British Championship and Word Championship in the 11-16 age group. Dury is a new team member.

Finn says he is looking forward to the challenges of both events.
