Irvine gymnasts are jumping for joy to be representing their country this summer.

Irvine Bay Gymnastics Club will be taking part in World Gymnaestrada in Dornbirn, Austria from 7-13 July where 23,000 individuals from 60 countries will take part in the week-long, non-competitive festival.

Irvine Bay Gymnastics Club collected their team kit at the national rehearsal day in Nottingham last month, where Great Britain’s delegation came together for the final time before they travel to the event.

This is Irvine Bay’s second Gymnaestrada as a club but for most of the team, will be their first opportunity to perform abroad.

Head Coach, Amanda Boucher said: “It’s a new experience for lots of our gymnasts, who will get to perform abroad, meet other gymnasts and see more of the world. To be in the gymnastics world for a whole week is very exciting.

“Collecting and trying on their GB kit was brilliant – it’s going to be difficult to get them to take it off!”

The event takes place every four years and will include gymnasts from 30 British Gymnastics affiliated clubs.

Olympic bronze medallist Amy Tinkler said: “Watching the rehearsals has been amazing, the performances all looked incredible and the commitment and passion of the gymnasts and coaches is clear to see. I know everyone will do Great Britain proud.”
