Well, you may or may not know but I am going to the British Championships at the Echo Arena, Liverpool next month and I am super hyped. It's the biggest national meet in Britain and is basically a qualifier/decider for European and World competitions. In 2012, first year senior Rebecca Tunney took the all-around title. It's shaping up to be a great field with amazing new seniors like Gabrielle Jupp (2013 American Cup competitor) and Angel Romaeo. The older, more experienced gymnasts are likely to include Hannah Whelan, Rebecca Tunney and Niamh Rippin. Unfortunately, we won't see Jennifer Pinches or Beth Tweddle due to retirement. 

So enough of the pre competition story, I am going to the Event Finals on Sunday 24th March, so make sure you keep note of that. So you know, the top 8 girls go up on each event  and battle for victory. 

The biggest part of the annoyance of overseas gymnastics is time zones. It's quite annoying when you want to watch an event but have to stay up at stupid o'clock. It's an early start at 10:30am so make sure all you gym fans, get up and follow the action. Here is a list of the major times from other time zones (if you're is not listed, sorry!);

Eastern Time - 6:30am EST

Central Time - 5:30am CST

Pacific Time - 3:30am PST

Mountain Time - 4:30am MST

Sydney Time - 9:30pm EDT

Moscow Time - 1:30pm MSK

Eastern European Time - 12:30pm EET

So, many of you have said that you would like video coverage on YT so I'm likely to be bringing my video camera. I am also going to be live tweeting but not as regular as videos. I also may be able to live blog but I am down for YT and Twitter.
