In 20 mins, 3 teams from Europe will go head to head in the British Gymnastics Capital of Pipers Vale. Great Britain have a big team of 12 girls with Finland only representing two.#
Here is the full start list before we get into details.
Maria Paula Vargas
Toya Rojas Pascual
Ana Maria Izurieta
Elena Zaldivar Saez
Beth Tweddle MBE
So, who can we expect to do well?
Well, I doubt the Finnish girls will challenge for medals but we could see some surprises. In the Spanish camp, all 4 girls are very strong floor workers so we could see them come alive there. Vargas is very strong on vault aswell so she could medal. Moving to Britain, we already know that Britain will win as the team because they have 12 to 4. Beth? Slight injury prior to Europeans therefore sitting out, if she really wants this Olympics, she is going to have to try a little hard to make the team. Beam is were Britain can go far. Francis, Pinches, Whelan, all very talented beam workers (as being the beam workers in the team final at Euros.) Obviously, Tunney and Tweddle will be the ones going for gold on bars. No Ruby? Lizzie Beddoe? and for the other teams, where's Claudia Menendez? and Paula Tiita for Finland.
