They say that Gymnastics is the mother of ALL SPORTS. The human attributes of spatial awareness, strength, flexibility, agility and the desire to achieve outstanding feats of acrobatic skill can transfer to any sport at a later age. Southampton Gymnastics is proud of the part it played in Billy Morgan's recent participation at the Winter Olympics in Sochi 2014. Billy began training at Southampton Gymnastics as a youngster in our recreational classes, building up to selection into the acrobatic gymnastics squad. He built up to achieving selection into the Great Britain Team - European Championships in Acrobatic Gymnastics as a part of a Men's Four Combination.
As Billy's internal fire and desire to challenge himself further, he then took up the sport of snowboarding, achieving Olympic selection. Billy's involvement with Southampton Gymnastics has not stopped as he regularly attends our busy freestyle adult class.
So whether a child starts in our tumble tots, gym bobs, recreational classes and either takes up another sport or moves into our squads then Gymnastics in Southampton can lead to many different opportunities.
Well Done to Billy and we look forward to seeing you when you get back.
