Will Breslin - Future BG Tumbling Gymnast

Will Breslin is a student on the Extended Diploma in Outdoor Adventure at Moulton College. Will is also a tumbler. This is a form of gymnastics that takes place on a 25 metre long track comprising planks of wood held in a metal frame with carpet on top, making up a sprung track called a tumble track.

Will competed in a selection event on 1st-2nd March for 15-18 year olds at Lilleshall in order to gain a place for the forthcoming European Championships from 9-14th April  in Lisbon,  Portugal. Will finished 5th in this event, narrowly missing out on selection with the first four going through.  Will, however, is the first reserve and still has a chance to go.

Will also competes back at Lilleshall on the weekend of March 15th and 16th in the British Championships. Here he will be competing in the 17-18 age group, a narrower range, with a routine that should place him in the top eight. If successful, he will automatically gain a place in the British Team to travel to the World Championships in Florida later in the year.
