First Post in the Gymnast Series


The sisters train at Cardiff Central in Wales under coach Tracey Skirton.

Venus will be 13 this year and has already has a successful gymnastics career being British Espoir Champion on Vault at age 12 and British Schools Champion 2008. She currently has 28 golds to her name!

Angel will be 12 this year and makes her British Championship debut in the Espoir division. She was British National Champion at age 10 and 11 and has been even more successful than her sister with 40 gold medals!

This year they will compete against each other at the British Championships so it will be interesting to see who comes out on top. Last year in the run up to the Olympic Games they were both featured in a BBC programme called Olympic Dreams focusing on Britains medals hopes for 2012. The 2 segments below features their whole family - very dedicated or a little obsessive what do you think?

The rest of the programme can be seen on youtube and there is also a video of them working legs at age 6 and 5 Check it out!
