Following today's competition, we write to you about today's British Team Championships, the 1st big Olympic Qualifier in the British calender. We had an absence from 2 Liverpool Girls, Hannah Whelan and Beth Tweddle but the competition didn't disappoint. Not everyone competing today was vying for Olympic Qualification Berth, as we saw many Juniors take to the stage. Biggest highlight? Possibly, 2008 Olympian and University of Florida's Marissa King came back from her NCAA Collegiate Stage to try and qualify herself to London 2012. She had a 14.6 on Vault, 13.15 on Floor but her scores weren't added as she was a trialist. Can King maintain the steady progress? 

In the Team Event, Liverpool swooped to victory by a clear 1.20 margin over second placed The Academy, which was a big surprise. Taking the rear of the podium was Notts.
