As Holly's progress has been gaining momentum, lots of exciting and new opportunities have appeared for her. Holly has grabbed them with eagerness and determination. A follow up piece on Holly's improvement since being sponsored for the Asymmetric Bars she required for training has appeared on BBC South Today.
Southampton Gymnastics Technical Director - Keri Llewellyn states:
" Holly has made remarkable progress which certainly is bearing fruit with her competition successes. As Holly states in her interview, at the moment she is the only senior disabilities member and the uniqueness of her training is that she works not within a specific disabilities environment but practices amongst her able bodied compatriots both within the recreational artistic group and the acrobatic/tumbling gymnastics squads training at elite level. The unique team environment created for Holly both inspires her and shows the other gymnasts how to overcome hurdles with a positive approach. The club would like to congratulate the lead coach, Lorna, for her work with Holly together with the support coaches of Jess Barker, Sarah Pike, Toby Winter, Jan Mulholland and Eddy Collins.
